Review
I bought this car used with 89k miles, now has 135k. It has performed well. Looks sporty. Seats not designed for the long haul. I'm 6 feet tall and fit well into car, but only with steering wheel tilted up getting/out. Engine burns 2 qt's oil between changes, but no smoke(?). Differential blew apart at 110k, taking tranny with it. Had junkyard tranny installed. Still runs good. Lots of rattles and creaks, particularly in cold weather. Love the ABS, traction control, stereo, sporty feel. Except for tranny, opertaing costs low. Insurance low for teenage daughter. Great student car. She even likes the manual trans. Not many of her friends can drave a standard.
Favorite Features
ABS, airbags, traction control, cruise control, A/C, fog lights (use 'em in fog only!), roof rack, OK sound system, power windows (never a fan before), sporty styling, good MPG, easy to maintain
Suggested Improvements
Better front seats, awkward shifter location, poor rear seats, many odd noises (ABS goes click-ita-clack after starting engine when first starting to move), wind noise at highway speed (roof rack)

Execellent onomonopia -- that's the best way to describe the sound as I remember it from my own SW1. The sound could also be heard whenever the car slid on ice.
