The CSVT is a sedan that rivals the BMW 3 series. Maybe not in build quality or status, but in performance, handling, and fun to drive. I never feel squirrely or unstable at highway speeds and because of the stopping ability I haven't needed a body shop yet. The torque is incredible and doesn't even compare to a Honda Accord or Civic. Overall this is a fun car to drive and a great deal when compared to imports.
The exhaust sounds great above 2500 rpm and the styling is great. It looks very smooth without a spoiler. The white face gauges against the midnight blue interior looks great and the seats are comfortable on long drives and the bolstering keeps you in your seat on hard cornering.
On long car rides the backseat passangers don't have much room or a cup holder. The front cupholders are almost worthless. The backseats need to be easier to fold down.
