Very satisfying car to own. Love the
looks, sound and performance. Takes
some getting used to at first, it's not
a weak car that you can just floor in
1st & second gear. You can get sideways
in a hurry (which is fun) especially if
the pavement is cold or wet. You have
to learn to roll into the throttle if
traction is suspect. I use it as a
daily driver in Michigan even in
winter. I throw some winter tires on
for the 3 snowy months and it does
better than our front drive minivan.

drift at will. Hatchback design allows
me to throw my mountain bike in back.
Better gas mileage and more fun than
the pickups & SUV's that are popular
around here. T-tops.
Needs independent rear suspension. Rear
differential is ancient design. I'm
tired of the creaking and grinding
noises from the rear differential
during low speed turns. Stereo system
is poor. Lots of cheap plastic
interior. Power window motors keep
