I heard that these cars were very good and so far it has lived up to its reputation. My GS handles like a dream. Is so quiet even with 133000 miles on her that I can hardly hear the enging. Parts are available cheaply. I have replaced a few things but only because I had no record of replacements, such timing belt, water pump, breaks and clutch. But these things do wear out.
I love the 5 speed, soft leather interior, quiet ride, fuel economy is good with 27 on highway and 20 in the city. The DSP stereo is astounding... 8 speaker surround sound.
Cup holders, car sits very low and can be hard to get in for taller people. I do not recommend it for people over 6'2". The hiding antenna is a pain. Just put on a permanent one.
