This four door GSR has been reliable, fun to drive, and fuel effecient. For the first few years used premium gas, stopped when gas $ spiked and have noticed no degredation in performance. Would recommend car to anyone. Still runs great after 108K miles.
Reliability, good power with effecient fuel economy.
Suggested improvements: seat comfort, too low and tough on lower back, and increased ground clearance.
I love my car so much I am having
trouble parting with it. Am looking
at minivans as have new additions to
family. This car served me well.
Only repairs were exhaust/brakes
(normal maintenance). It has awesome
acceleration, handling. So much fun to
drive. Great fuel economy. Sterio is
great. ALOT of car for the money.
Exterior held up well in snow country.
Engine- acceleration/handling. Look
and feel of a sports car with 4 door
convenience. Loved the stick.
Seats too low for long drive comfort.
Cup holders too small and in the way
of the radio.
This was my first car and I had
researched it for a long time. This
was the best value in 1996. It offered
great performance, along with good
styling, a great amount of space, and
great amount of power coupled with a
manual transmission in a SEDAN (4-
DOOR) package!! What other car could
beat that for under $25k in 1996?
- Great Interior Build Quality
- Insurance was lower than it's COUPE
counterpart even though they were
EXACT same + 2 doors.
- Great Power in an inexpensive
- Definitely is NOT a Honda Civic
- Manual Transmission could've had
- Bad location of Cup Holders (blocks
radio controls with large cups)
- More aggressive exterior styling
- Better security for external
Great car. I love that its 4 door.
Pretty fast for a car that you can get
35 mpg. A great alternative to getting
a civic or accord at the same price.
Unless you can afford a bmw 7 series or
something similiar this is a great car.
engine, handling and reliablility
Needs more torque and the interior
could be more comfortable and quiter.
