I was going to buy this car back in
2003, but decided to stay a little
longer with my 8 year old car and save
some money. I just got the 04 model
yesterday and although I haven't being
able to push it (break-in period); it
feels solid. Engine is quiet upon
acceleration and super quiet when
idle. Road noise can be felt at
freeway speeds, but it is a "sports"
car. Compared to my old car, the
handling is very precise and the
transmission is second to none. Got
the car for $17,100 plus tax and title.
Seats, Gauges (look nice at night),
handling, engine punch (it is no
Ferrari, but it doesn't cost $150,000
either. Transmission is a dream.
Plenty of cup holders. You either
like the design or don't; I love it.
Better stock radio. Height adjustment
on the seats. Armrest in the middle.
