Previously owned a 2001 model that I had to change because of all year round functionality. Missed the vehicle so much that I couldn't wait to own another. Found a 2004 model. Just love the upgrades such as bigger engine, wheels,more torque etc. Delighted to be back behind the wheel of this little machine. The 2004 model is definitely easier to drive than the 2001 and I am still convinced that this is the best value for money in its class on the road. At 6'2" anything but a truck can be tight but this is quite comfortable. It is a really fun to drive vehicle and still turns heads even though it has been around for 5 years plus. Hope to keep for a long time.
Short throw gearbox, v-tec kick and handling. Power roof is efficient and effective.
Adjustable steering wheel and a bit more room. Would also like to see what a possible future 6 cylinder version could do????
