No Brainer-Buy this Car!

Great car. Fun to drive and practical. If you can drive a 5 speed get it! Zoom-Zoom. Also, if you can spring for the leather interior it's a lot more comfortable than the cloth. I wanted the Lava Orange, but wound up with 5 speed, Black Mica, leather and moonroof. I'm too afraid of 6 airbags to go for the ABS package. The car turns heads and people here in Slower, Lower, Delaware ask "What is that car?' So far, so good, nice handling, good looks, regular gas, nice detail, good price. Even the basic package comes with lots of good stuff.
Acceleration, handling, looks, sturdy car and not as small as you would think. Plenty of leg and head room even for backseat passengers. Very user friendly, even says " Hello" on the radio dial when you turn the car on!
Not much to suggest. Love the car. Only thing I don't like is the placement of the audio antenna. Unless you get the bumper "step plate," the antenna is hard to reach to remove for the car wash guys.
