I bought this late in 2006 after deciding that I needed a cheap, good fuel-economy small car to go to work with and take for occasional longer drives in the Northeast corridor. I've been very satisfied with it so far. It's got strong brakes, is super-fun to drive, really stable on curves, and zips in and out of traffic like a dream. The kicker audio is just awesome and lets me keep the engine noise in check! Fuel economy is okay to good, but the tank's pretty small, about 12gallons. I'd buy this car again if Dodge made some improvements and put this out on the market again, say, in 2008.
Stability control, strong brakes, and stereo system. Good AC and heat, and great fun to drive for the price.
Need power rear windows. Better acceleration, capacity, and less engine noise. Also, not enough space to store CDs and stuff. The on/off button on the stereo is too close to the gear shift.
