Downside: Firm ride for those not use to sports suspension. Back seats, though roomy enough for anyone under 6'is not made for getting in and out of often. Upside: Everything else: Handling, speed, traction, stereo, size (I am 5'11, 160lbs). Seats fit perfectly, engine sounds great and is easy to rev up to get going. Mileage checked over 3 tanks hovers around 29mpg. Overall a quality little car for the money. Double Upside: iVTEC will scream when revs hit 6K+ (wait till broken in!!)
Handling, 6 speed, acceleration, LSD, seating and overall feel.
