Not only for teens, being a 60+ guy who wanted to try a stick shift again.
Bought new, there is now over 18,000 miles on my G5 - all of it put on by me.
It's a blast to drive.
I'd forgotten how much punch a manual transmission provides compared to the non-premium automatics.
The freeway on-ramps are fun again and driving in traffic is even much more interesting than driving an automatic.
I've had absolutely no problems with the car.
Mileage is over 28 mpg in town and over 35 on the highway - with regular gas and a fairly "heavy" foot.
The ride is fairly quiet and comfortable.
Finally, my wife loves to go out with me in our "sports car!"
Nice looking, fun to drive and manual transmission provides surprising power from the economical four cylinder engine.
