This is a great looking, great
sounding, pretty fun to drive car.
When I brought it home the first day,
my brother asked me if it came with a
speeding ticket. It just looks like
you should be driving it hard.
I mostly use it on weekends, but
occasionally drive it to work on snowy
days. It handles surprisingly well in
My only doubt in buying this car is

It's nice to have a car that still

own it two years after it was paid for!
V6 + 5-speed rocks, awesome stereo,

fewer squeaks and rattles, telescoping
steering wheel, both windows auto
down/up, flat trunk floor
It's been a fun car *and* reliable &
economical to boot. Good-looking and
practical! Have not had any repair

the fold down read seats. I only wish
the back of seats and floor area in
the back were carpet rather than the
felt-like material. Very hard to
clean. Been very reliable, with no
