It's second hand and WAS in great
condition. Great value. I highly
recommend Hyundai's 1997+ Elantra and
Tiburon- no experiences with their
other cars. Even got 35mpg cruising at
75-80mph. The alignment was slightly
off due to my brother's excellent
driving into a truck. DEFINETLY NOT a
mountain racer- sad to say, even my
mom's 1992 AUTOMATIC Corolla handles
better overall! I've tried emergency
lane changes at 40mph. The rear kicks
too hard; damn physics and weight
transfer! Now if the car was lowered
1.25" with stiffer springs and anti-
sways, slap some 16"x7" wheels . . .
Just a great car, really!
BETA series motor- 90% of torque is
developed at sub-3000rpm- great low end
torque, especially with manual.
VERY fun to drive with manual tranny
shorter shifter action
engine WHEEZES in high revs (4500rpm+)
better gripping tires
needs more standard equipment
needs lighting on HVAC controls;
complete darkness in the night
needs better placement of cup holders!
better "holding" seats?
