The car is outstanding - fun to drive, and absolutely reliable. Mine has a 5-speed transmission. Quality of everything is top-notch. My only complaints were the way the transmission shifted for about the first year - clutch was very difficult to engage smoothly, but it eventually broke in and is now fine. There has not been a single thing wrong with the car since the day I drove it out of the showroom.
Handling is great. Interior design is very nice, including the leather seats that look good and are not hot in summer or cold in winter.
Gas mileage seems too low for a car this size. I'm only getting about 21 MPG in combined city/highway driving.
