ReviewA fun car to drive with the optional 2.3 liter engine. I prefer manual transmission, but the automatic was good because of the manual shift feature. Fit and finish were very good. Good room (we had the hatchback), handing and steering tight and nimble. Only problem was with one window that quit working, but our local dealer fixed under warrantee with no issues. Local dealer experience very good. They offered free tires and battery for the life of the car if regular scheduled maintenance done. Good fuel economy, we actually got better than what's posted on the window sticker. A good car for the money, don't even bother with any comparable American-made compacts.
Best FeaturesPeppy engine, nimble handling, a good stereo system. Strong windshield Glass, resists flying Stone cracks better than other cars.
Worst FeaturesOffer more manual cars, go with less power assist in the steering. Maybe offer a two door version to compete with Honda and scion coupes.
