Great fun for the money

ReviewI bought this car used with 72k miles, and it's the best value I could hope for. Great fun to drive, steering and handling are super, will zip when you stand on the throttle--five speed with 16v 2liter 4 are more than adequate. Plenty of power for passing and mountain driving. The hatch and fold-down rear seats add to its utility, and rear seat room surprises all who crawl back there. A/C and heat are both powerful, all accessories work great. Cockpit is cozy and ergonomics are great; a very comfortable driving position. I paid $5700 and can't imagine more fun for that money. The original owner took care of recall repairs and it's been trouble free for me.
Best FeaturesSunroof, five speed, steering and handling--mine has the 16" low-profile wheels and tires.
Worst FeaturesI'd feel more confident with ABS. Engine a bit growly under acceleration, and poor wheel-well insulation, so driving in rain or slush can be noisy. Flip-open rear windows would be nice.
