Not A Bad Choice For The Value And Mpg — great mileage, fit/finish good. local dealer sux. Pirelli tires that came with it were rubbish. Sirius radio package cool but over priced. 30000 miles and no maint. issues except for tires at 18000 miles. Test drive and judge for yourself.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 35 plus MPG

Cons: local dealer

I Was Disappointed With It When I First Bought It, But Now It's Really Grown On Me And I Love It! — Still only a year old, so still in excellent shape. Drifts extraordinarily well, drives great on dirt tracks, but not a whole lot of acceleration for a fwd. 35+ mpg though, even with my lead foot, and it's excellent for weaving through rush hour traffic!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Wonderful for weaving through rush hour traffic!

Cons: Bottom line, even the 2 door is still really a grocery getter at heart.
