I wanted something a bit sportier, but
this car was a great compromise between
styling and affordability. It gets
great gas millage (EPA ratings are right
on target), handles well, and has enough
power to get over hills without a fuss.
Don't get in an accident with this
vehicle though, because although it does
a good job keeping you safe, the damage
to the vehicle is going to be expensive.
Many of the parts cannot be easily
repaired and need to be replaced
(bumpers, shock absorbers, etc.)
The stock stereo system sounds great
especially at high frequencies. The
bass response could be a little better.
If I did want to replace the stereo
system, the styling makes it quite
difficult to put something in that will
look as good as the stock system.
