Review
Car drives excellent on dry pavement. This car isn't a daily commuter if you have snow, the OEM RSA eagles slide all over in 2" of snow. Get snow tires. The car is well worth the money, but a lot of plastic and styrofoam in front end. Insurance is high on this car, but so is the Civic. The 2.0 engine is more frugal on gas than it's 2.3 liter. I rented the 2.3 liter HB but it wasn't worth the extra gas money. This car is a sports sedan with the low pro tires and sits higher than a mini and Civic, that's why I bought it. However next year it's history I'm going with a car that has real carpets, and a more rigid build for safety.There are not enough options on a 2.0 also.
Favorite Features
Use of cruise and radio on steering wheel. Sharp design of car.
Suggested Improvements
A better carpet instead of felt. Get rid of ash tray and cigarette lighter and replace with phone or iPod outlet w/lid. RSA eagle tires un safe in 2" of snow. Leave your car parked or go buy 4 snow tires. Also what's with the velcro mats? Also too much plastic to make car lighter for better MPG .
