ReviewThis car has a lot more torque than other small cars in the same price range - and that's what makes it a very fun car to drive. The manual transmission is a bit notchy, the interior materials arean't of the highest quality, and the red-colored instrument panel is tough to see sometimes.... But you need to remember that this is baiscally a cheap economy car with a big engine dropped in it. If you take it for what it is, it's a great car. I've been averaging 28 mpg with mostly highway driving - not great for a small car, but there is a lot more bottom end on this engine than on a Civic or Corolla engine, so you are trading mpg for torque.
Best Features16" wheels, decent stock stereo, excellent engine torque, more agreeable interior than the Spec V. Handles well and is fun to drive. Reliable (mine has 52,000 miles on it now).
Worst FeaturesThis car has a small gas tank - very noticeable in city driving. The truck is also small, even for this class of vehicle. Red numbers on instruments (already fixed in subsequent models), rear end of vehicle looks awkward.
