An under rated little car that goes all winter up here in Alaska- never failing to start, even at 20 below zero.Seats 5 if the 3 in back are under 5'8. Pluses: nibble little snow car that can traverse unplowed roads with 6 inches of fresh snow falling. The front wheel drive and steering combo make control flat out awesome. I do have abs and a manual transmission. Negatory power- there is no vroooom but I get 33 mpg in town. I would buy this car again in a heart beat. It reminds me of a cross between my favorite car ever, the 1978 Saab 900 and the old diesel rabbit. Back seats fold flat practicality in a feature packed low low cost ride. Great comuter ski bunny car. Get the sunroof!
Steering and handling on ice and snow Sun roof and premium sound system Incredible low cost Looks like a sports car Folding rear seats Very reliable, no repairs in over 60,000 miles. Only cost is new tires. Good heater for cold days
The rear trunk deck will pour snow into your trunk if you open the trunk without brushing the snow off first. The gas lid on the 1999 does not lock
