It's light, corners well for such an
imbalanced weight distribution, and is
otherwise a fabulous piece of
machinery. The paint does chip easily,
especially evident in the hood and
front fenders. The rubber seals around
the doors and roof seem to slowly start
dissolving at about 4 years of age, but
no leaking yet. The speakers are
adequate, but the included stereo is
the first thing to replace though. A
name-brand under-200 dollar CD/radio
has been a great improvement. Very
impressive reliability record. A more
stylish commuter car than the CRX or
*ick* Geo, and more efficient than
taking the family car.
Stereo face flip-cover, trunk-able
roof, lockable containers behind seats.
Wider tires to improve braking
performance - too easy to slide in
emergency situations when braking far
too hard. Perhaps ABS. Harder/more
durable clearcoat and paint.
