Great Car. Has good low end pick up.
Very responsive engine. Engine is not
as peaky as a 99 Civic and has more
gusto than a 99 Corolla. Transmission
is easy to use and shifts smoothly.
Handling and acceleration are excellent
for this type of car. Interior feels
airy, comfortable and avoids the
cramped "econobox" feeling. Back seat
is even roomy for adults. The trunk is
spacious. You don't feel like
you "settled" for this car.
Engine, transmission, sporty
suspension, alloy wheels, handsome
exterior design, comfortable seats,
spacious interior and trunk, good AM/FM
stereo and CD player.
ABS and side airbags should be standard
for this trim level. Less hard plastics
in the interior. More evening
instrument illumination. Fuel economy
could be a little better. An extra 15
horsepower is always a plus.
