I have a 6 spd manual and I have to say its the best car I've ever owned and I'm putting this against past cars of mine such as 91 mr2 turbo, 96 Impala ss, 95 infiniti g20 and 00 Lincoln ls v8. It rides better than the Lincoln and has more power than the Impala. On one hand it doesn't handle like an mr2 but for what it is its fun to push into the corners and bring out with 400 ft. Lbs ! Sideways. The tires are cheap to replace because of size. Exhaust tone is better sound to me than the very nice 6 disc blaupunkt stereo. Bose should have been the choice on that. Service is easy. With 20k for miles when I bought it for 18k it's a steal ! Avg mpg is 24 and thats from stop and go to 75 mph highway.
Gas mileage! All you out there who think 24 avg is not good are crazy for 400 hp and 400 ft lbs. 67 gto 400 got about 6, if you're lucky 8! Ls2 motor with 6 spd. Simple yet super comfortable interior. Common tire size on all 4 corners. Diesel like hd clutch, never stalls.
trunk space, outside temp gauge in rear view. thats it!
