Ok i'm a teen driver and it's my first car and in my opinion it is most definitely a great car if taken car of. However if it isn't, things start falling apart left and right, and due to the mess of features available for this, it's an expensive fix and a pain to find parts. A lot of power i think, and the turning is extremely comfortable. Inside is a little cramped at times but the all digital display is pretty cool. Very low to the ground so you need to be wary of where you are driving and slightly careful. Only downside is the size, which is only a problem due to parking. The size of the hood and the height make it hard to see the spaces around you, which is a pain in parking lots.
Comfort of the ride, including steering and power of the engine
Size of the hood due to parking, fuel economy. more spaces available for cd's, only holds four and the glove box doesn't hold very much either.
Eleven years of roomy, comfortable,
powerful head turning pleasure.
Maintainence includes brake pads, oil
changes, one radiator hose and one
radiator( in the tenth year). It's
understandable why MT selected this
model as Car of the Year for the second
consecutive year in 1993. All this with
an annual depreciation cost of about
$2,600 per year.
Leg room in the front seat. Heated
seats with heat in the back rest.
Simple controls that do not require
stopping the vehicle to safely change
radio, tape/cd or heating/cooling
An AMG-like upgrade to both handling
and performance as an option. More leg
room in the back seat.
