The best car I've ever owned. 30 mpg average on the highway 24 avg on the road.(and thats 2000 ft above sea level. It would be 2 mpg better at sea level.) Great utility with the hatchback. I can haul almost anything. 0-60 in high 6's quarter mile low 15's. Add intake, header, and exhaust it drops to 14.9 quarter with good driving skill -at SEA LEVEL. 15.4 at 2000 ft. No car has better value and performance for the money. Reliability.... this car will do over 300,000 miles. radiator leak at 60 k, timing belt water pump at 110,000 plus. Timing belt usually fine, but keep eye on water pump. I own a 2004 acura TL now and a truck. Have to part with her, but will alway have great mem.
Seats very supported, comfy. Like auto down windows. Hatchback is the bomb for utility. The looks of this car will hold its style for years past most. Reliability, solid vehicle is blissfuldependability. This car has class.
gauges illumination should be brighter. Its adjustable, but not bright as it should. Bigger center compartment would be nice. Better radiator design. Shouldnt leak at 60 k, should last over 100 k or 6 years. The white paint lasts long looks the best.
