ReviewOverall, this is a decent car, but a bit expensive for its type ($600 for a three-speed automatic? Come on, Dodge). This model has had at least one recall, on the brakes, so be *sure* yours has had the recall work done (the recall issue can lead to total brake failure while stopping). It gets good city fuel economy, not-so-good (but still OK) highway, and the cabin is a bit cramped if you're taller than 5'8". This is a car for the commute to work, not the road trip to Washington. Very distinctive style, you'll either love the look or hate it.
Best FeaturesThe dash layout is pretty good (but see below for caveats). Nice CD changer, never heard it skip even in rough driving.
Worst FeaturesTires should be wider for better traction. Steering-wheel layout a pain, e.g. dome-/dashlight control on inside of left stem. Needs more footroom both front and back -- trips over 20 minutes are painful for tall people. Rear deck so high it obstructs visibility of objects close to rear.
