Review

This car is an absolute blast to
drive. I have a 5 spd manual
transmission and it is quite zippy.
However, it is a base model vehicle so
you pay for what you get. It has 43000
miles and haven't had a problem with
it yet. I do however question the
build quality of the vehicle, the
doors kind of have a rattling noise to
them when you slam the door. It just
doesn't feel real solid, but overall a
great car and very fun to drive. Also,
it has a great storage capacity. I was
very surprised, once you fold down the
backseat you can fit just about
anything in the hatch.


Best Features

Performance and Good Looks


Worst Features

Would be nice to have ABS, and maybe just a few more horses but definitely not bad especially with a manual.

Review

going on my 5th year with this car and
i'm still in love with it. with no more
than routine maintenance it still runs
like new and it's style doesn't seem
dated. very fun to drive and low
maintenance.


Best Features

appearance- still a head-turner. great cargo room too.


Worst Features

RS model is sluggish off the line, could have used larger engine or turbo.
