This is my first NEW car purchase. I am really impressed. From the audio system, to the comfort, to the steering, it all feels very "sports car." This car is actually replacing the Toyota replacement, the Celica GT-S. Now, it's not as fast as my Celica, but with the 5MT it is very smooth. The light short-shift clutch is very easy (a great car for beginners), and with the 18" Scion Upgraded wheels I put on, the steering is very aggressive. The upgraded Pioneer Audio with iPod is very bass-friendly and sounds really good to my surprise. The interior space was MUCH better than I expected and the reclining second row is very convenient, since hatchbacks are usually cramped. 7 Airbags
High class audio display. 18" Wheels. Transmission. Safety.
Add more power. Gas mileage in the city is averaging only about 21-23, not so great for around the town.
