I bought this car brand new, and never
regretted it. Only time it gave up on
me was when the starter gave out at
190,500 miles. Over the years, this
hatchback gave me outstanding
reliability. It was a fun-to-drive rear-
wheeled drive, with minimized roll on
tight speed-turns, good acceleration
(160 ft/lbs of torque at around 4000
rpm), very good fuel consumption, and
an outstanding drive-train, not to
mention the sporty good looks. I love
Peppy 2.4L 4cy engine, hatchback style
with plenty of cargo space when the
rear seats are folded down, rear-wheel
drive, very good mileage consumption
for the HP it generates, sporty good
looks, outstanding power train.
it is fun it seems like there is a
little something behind it, specially
in the 60-90 range. Very very
skiddish, had it 2 mths and 2
fishtails, a third minor one today
testing turning radius. maybe i need
to put some ballast in car. mechanics
feel good, engine sounds nice.
short-throw stick, all pedals feel good
and responsive, looks different from
most cars in its class.
half the time it feels like its flying
off the ground.
