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