Review
It's been a little over two years and 32000 miles. My biggest downsides have been the factory Toyo A18 tires, which are noisy and, allow too much wheelspin when wet. Also, it requires a "running start" up steep unpaved hills in North Carolina but it's OK on the flat grounds of Florida, although wheelspin, when wet, is easy with stick shift models. The weight distribution is 56/44 with auto and 55/45 with manual. You wouldn't want a trailer with this little front bias.
Favorite Features
Nothing else like it and one of the best manual transmissions ever was put into a car.
Suggested Improvements
All wheel drive should've been offered, especially with the manual transmission. Definitely, keep the manual transmission but offer all wheel drive and better original equipment tires, although tires are replaceable and the next size up is cheaper.
