I bought this car b/c it was inexpensive and seemed practical. I have to admit I was attracted to its styling also. It looked cool. The car has been good to me. The biggest plus I have to say is space. Don't let it fool you, there is a lot of room inside. I was able to move between apartments in 3 trips with this car, fitting beds, desks, etc. It is not for long distance, and is loud at high speeds. It doesn't get too dirty, and has so much room to put stuff, wallets, keys, phone, anything. The mp3 audio port is a great feature. I need something faster and better looking though, so am trading it for Benz/BMW.
The room. You can do so much with the seats down. Look alike it could be a lot of fun to take camping, and other outdoor activities.
High revving on highway, it should have been able to handle that. More comfort features inside, perhaps better upholstery. Maybe a little more power.
