My experience was fun to drive if your speeding around wasting gas, but lacking in fun to drive if you are carrying passengers or taking a trip longer than an hour.
Handling and plenty of room in the hatchback
tire size and make is rare. This makes tires expensive and extremely difficult to find bargains for. Factory stereo quality is junk. Interior creature comforts are lacking. No place to put a soda or drink without it being in the way of the radio or shifter. Back seat is useless.
