I bought this car in Jan. 2003, and it was a former rental. I was going from an '88 Honda civic to this one, so I was pretty impressed. It's a good looking car. A bit small, but my family of four fits just fine. A few things broke: front pwr. windows wont roll, AC works only on high. I am bummed, but still happy with my choice.
Good power, even when going up steep hills on freeways
Back seats a bit crowded, front needs cup-holders that won't get lost (mine is gone), better shocks are needed for sure. We've got our fair share of potholes here in Honolulu.
