Bought this car off a mechanic's lot with 96,000 mi. for $1,900. After owning it for two weeks, the "anti-theft system" (which in this case causes the steering wheel to lock up unless the [proper] key is inserted into the ignition) went ahead and locked up the steering wheel even though I was indeed trying to start the car with it's own key. Had to take the car back to the mechanic, who removed the "anti-theft system" for about $300. My faith being shaken, I began to prepare for the worst, but (so far) the car has given me no problems since. I find acceleration with the 3.3 to be sluggish, although the car does handle well for its size.
Front end styling, very spacious interior, handling, cool black on white gauges.
Acceleration is lacking with the 3.3, headlights seem a little dim, ridiculously plinky steering wheel. (Though this can be remedied with the addition of a nice steering wheel cover.)
