I have the automatic and have no
problem accelerating to speed on the
freeways, even with passengers and air
on. The air conditioning is nice and
cold. I drove on a 7% grade in the
mountains with 3 heavy poeple in the
car including myself and was easily
able to keep it at 50mph in 2nd gear.
The temp. didn't go up at all
either.It also handles easily with the
power steering. The looks aren't
spectacular but they are contemporary
still and have some personality.
Probably the best feature will be the
reliability of the car.
Peppy engine, good handling, strong
power brakes, air conditioning, sound
system, lumbar supports on front
bucket seats, roomy trunk.
Smoother shifting under acceleration,
more rear passenger room.
