This car manages to keep my long commute fun even though it doesnt have much power. The 5-speed manual transmission still shifts like butter even with 120k of hard driving in southern California traffic. This car really doesnt feel like it has the miles that it does. It still handles very well but could use new struts (they are a bit weak). This car has aged very well and I plan to keep it for at least 4 more years. The only repair other then routine maintenance so far on this car was the headlight switch under warranty.
Very smooth Manual Trans Integrated rear window antenna Responsive steering Flat floor Huge interior for a small car, it can fit 4 6 foot tall adults comfortably. 36 MPG average 60/40% hwy/city
It could be a little quieter inside other then that I cant think of anything.
