Review

Awesome to drive! I like the zipping around feeling from the little car and the manual transmission is the only way to go! Bought the car about 2 years ago and it is not aging well...found numerous times we have had to put patch work on it. I will say I'm not sure about safety, it doesn't seem like it would hold up well in a collision but i don't know.


Best Features

CD player 5-speed transmission comfortable (if by yourself)


Worst Features

CD changer should not be in trunk Low geared transmission (1 & 2 can be rough) Close quarters if others are riding with you

Review

Bought this car in 2010 with 68,000 miles,it now has 89,000. Only perpuse is to drive to and from work daily, 75 mile round trip. Gets awesome gas milage, rutinly between 32-37. it all depends on how you drive it. If you try to stay at 80mph, you will get horrable mileage. I stay at 2800rpm or about 72mph on the highway, to get the mileage list above (2500prm or 68mph to get 37mpg). this is NOT a preformance car and shouldn't be driven like one, if you are looking for the GOOD mileage, however it will and does surpass all other models in its catagory.

Review

This was the first car I bought while in college. I bought it with 95,000 miles, and I am almost at 200,000 miles. It has been very reliable, and I have only had to replace a fuel filter and alternator. The clutch and transmission seem to still be going strong. A lot of things are starting to need work, so I will probably be buying a new car. My only problem while owning this car has been the gas mileage. I only seem to get about 25 MPG.


Best Features

Manual Transmission, Good Engine Performance, Reliable


Worst Features

They don't make this car anymore, so it doesn't matter.
