It took me 3 weeks to locate a black GT. It was definitely worth the wait. This car is the most versatile car out there. Below 3000rpm it is about equal to a Mazda 3. Then the turbo kicks in. It is a rocket sled. The WRX is more expensive with less power. The cobalt is cheaper and looks and handles cheaper. The G35 is nice but too pricey. To put this much power into a front wheel drive and make it work is an engineering marvel. The interior design is slick as well, the suspension is tight, and I love the headlight beam adjustment control option. The Bose system is very nice, and there is the midi port for mp3 players as well. The hatchback feature also gives it a lot of cargo room
Price! Great power, tight handling, good seat support, nice dash layout, great audio system, bright and adjustable headlights, roomy, lots of cargo space, very sharp looking. There are not many features not to like on this car
Light does not turn on automatically when you pop hatchback, is annoying at night. Low clearance makes it easy to bottom out car on rough roads. Shifter does not feel right, not sure if travel length between gears is too long or what. Does not come with a radar detector. :)
