i bought my cavy in 96 and was in love
wit the looks. the dealership also told
me it was very safe with the "steel
cage" and all--5*'s. but after i bought
it i read on edmunds and other sites
that the safety was iffy at best. i
havent had many problems with it
outside of the faulty circuitry that
makes my "check engine" light stay on
all the time. i wouldnt recommend it to
anyone other than a teen as a first
car. but you should DEFINITELY upgrade
the engine and stereo system.
