I bought my mystique sport when I got my licence 5 years ago. I bought it around 70k miles and now it has just over 100k. All I can really say is you get what you pay for. It's spent its fair share of time in the shop and I wouldn't really rely on it more than I have to to take an extended trip over a couple hours. That being said it was in an accident that I'm sure rattled some parts, causing some of the problems I've had. It can be somewhat fun to drive, although it's by no means a particuarly fast car. The sunroof leaks (directly on my crotch) and I've had the overhead cabin lights just completely fall out. Not the worst 1st car, but I'm looking to trade up asap
Everyone gets a kick out of my car phone, even though it's disconnected. Not a bad looking car and the engine sounds pretty nice (although performance doesn't really back it up). It's not too bad on gas either
More horsepower, more pull off the line. Don't buy this expecting a real "sports car"
