Bought it rental used @ 27,000 miles. Affordable. Great stock sound system especially the speakers. Very reliable. Excellent design. Sporty look. Gas friendly. Smooth. Quiet. Easy to tune and customize. Light and great handling. Roomy. An excellent car overall - especially for those looking for all of the above without breaking too much wallet. I had to let this go when it got totalled at 110,000. :(
Everything mentioned above - especially the look!
I've added some tuners to give it more kick, but would be nice if more power came in stock. Unfortunately they've replaced this with the Lancer sedan, but if they could bring this coupe back with more power (same as Lancer would be fine), I would definitely get another one.
