I bought the car because I love manual transmissions - its best feature. But the car is uncomfortable for short light weight people, can't raise the seat high enough to see the road well. My wife sits on a pillow. Seats are low, slippery and thin. No protective side moulding on doors, no trip computer, no compass, no automatic door locks. I drove it down 130 miles of washboard dirt road, where it fishtailed badly, paint chipped out, and the car developed rattles in dash and driver door. A good car for big heavy people who drive smooth pavement only. Two factory recalls.
Superb manual transmission/engine, pleasant interior.
Make softer seats that raise much higher, build in some suspension, paint, and body toughness.
