Fun to drive. Very quiet for the type
of acceleration experienced. Attracts
the attention of all who see it on the
road. We bought it new, with the gold
package, with spoiler and the gold
inset wheels. The light tan leather
interior stays cool in the hot summer
months. Have had no problems with the
vehicle to date. We expect it to last
for many years to come. Sorry to see
the Vigor line discontinue.
The sleekness of the vehicle is its
strongest attraction. The power/luxury
combination makes it unique, and
probably contributed to its demise.
A few ergonomic issues, and luxury
options which are now available on the
A very comfortable car with a little bit of zip as well. I bought mine with 89k on it and now it's got a total of 130K with no break-downs.
The 5 cyl 2.5 liter is peppy and fun to drive with the five speed transmission, although now I'm starting to crave more power.
I bought the car because I wanted the reliability and quality of a Honda Accord but I wanted something a little more unique and a little more sporty. My only complaints are that there are no cupholders, and the option dispersal. The GS version came with leather, sunroof, an upgraded stereo, and an extra airbag. I didn't want leather, so I couldn't get a sunroof in my LS.
The high revving engine with the five speed--lot's of fun to drive!
Add: Cup holders, adjustable lumbar supports in the seats, pass through trunk/fold-down rear seat.
