Bought this one after getting a '96 strictly for fuel economy. I am 6'4" the wife is 6'1" and we can travel without having our knees in our chest. Good response to throttle, handling great, and again fuel economy, all in a little car that so far has been VERY reliable. The stereo is great for a car that retailed for only $16,000, especially when you see luxury cars with stereos that aren't much better. Will definitely buy another to "play" with and keep this one for peace of mind on trips. By the way, standing 1/4 mile is 80 MPH, not bad for a economy car.
Mileage, handling, styling, overall performance, stereo and access to the trunk through back seat.
Bring it back, a little more horse power for under $20,000 if possible.Keep the options as they were, lets face it, it was an economy car that was/is fun to drive for not a lot of money.
