I bought this car because I live in California, the state with the highest gas prices in the continental U.S. I would recommend this car for gas mileage only. No appreciable luxury. Dated styling, unless you put a body kit on it. O.K. performance if you are willing to push the motor to the max, which is very unwise if you want an old car to last!
Gas mileage. Seats pretty comfortable for such a small car.
Get a Camaro, Mustang, or anything more deluxe if you want to get any self respect for owning a nice car!
