Review
Had problems with the 3 speed auto, had to be rebuilt after 60K miles. Also had a blown head gasket at 40K. Base 2.2 is already underpowered (93hp/2500lbs weight not good) and the car probably did no better than 14 second 0-60s new, although it was rather responsive above 60mph in 3rd when accelerating without kicking down to 2nd. Handling also excellent for a cheap car,very little body roll and excellent grip even from puny P185/70TR14s. Radio sucks, speakers are decent sized (5 1/4 inch in the front, 5X7s in the back) but bass response weak, even with aftermarket head unit. Front seats fairly comfortable, back cramped (expected), and styling very nice.
Favorite Features
Handling, looks, acceleration in 3rd above 60mph.
Suggested Improvements
Really needs a 4 speed auto and the 2.5 liter at the very least. Unfortunately, even the 2.5 only comes with the 3spd. A/C useless when traveling on hilly roads. Cheap radio.
