Is it a car or VCR?
After 18000 miles I would still buy this little car. It came with a lot of futures and without the big sticker. Engine is very rev happy, especially with 5-speed trans, delivering plenty of power in merging and passing (3rd gear is where the power is). Car is very confy, easy on gas (if driven right) and plenty of fun.
Handling. Well almost, I thought Kumho made racing tires... until I drove the Nubria. Other then that with a new set of tires Nubria can take on Neons in SCCA races, guaranteed!
TIRES!!! OEM Kumho's are the worse tire I have ever seen. Very poor traction, braking, snow traction (I've had better all seasons), they even lose air for no reason. Garbage.
