Auto trans, power package, ABS, side curtain air bags. Fun to drive, good on gas, lots of interior room. Very nice looking interior & reasonably comfortable. Considering the price it's amazing how much car you get for your money. Accelerates ok, auto trans shifts very well. Reasonably quiet at highway speeds. Corners nicely with amazing braking performance. Dash controls are nice and simple. This car is almost exactly what I wanted at an excellent price. Very satisfied.
Excellent Continental Contipro Contact tires standard. Roomy interior & large trunk. Available safety features.
S model has no center armrest. Rear seats do not fold down which was an annoying surprise. Better gas mileage? Push-button switching between performance and economy modes - could engine electronics and auto trans shifting be economically adapted to do this?
