I purchased this car for my 16 year daughter based on the safety features,the airbags. On May 24, 2007 Jordan was hit on the drivers side by a minivan traveling the posted speed limit (35mps). She was transported to Atlanta's Level 1 Trama Unit. 7 hours later, she walked out with me without a scratch on her. The extent of her injuries was when she lost conscious on impact and had a headache. She said the fire & rescue guy told her the airbags saved her life. I brought her the exact same car (different color) a month later.
As a mother- I like the airbags. JB likes the interior/exterior look. Oh - we both think it neat how the radio spells out "Hello Jordan" when she turns on the car.
