This is my favorite car ever. I have
had cars of varying makes and for some
unknown reason, I love this car more
than any of them. I have a nearly bare-
bones '02 XE (CD, spoiler and A/C are
the only options) and I'm just as comfy
as can be with it. This isn't to say
all is perfect. The seat fabric in the
XE is just embarassing - some weird
triangulation thing going on there, but
the cloth is extremely durable.
Overall, an excellent car. I wish it
were still built in the US of A (built
in Mexico), but at least the engine and
trans are still built in Japan.
Engine & transmission, front end
styling, reliability/durability, fuel
economy, general comfort and quietness.
