Dollar for dollar this is the most car for the money. Where else for 17k can you get a sun roof, ipod integration, alloy wheels and Toyota reliability? Let us not forget it has a Camry engine too! The fold flat rear seats are awesome too. Digital HVAC controls are nice too, most cars this cheap have lousy dials/knobs. If the "suggested improvements" things I listed are addressed it could possibly be a car with no compromise!
Sun roof, decent factory radio w/ ipod and steering wheel controls, decent handling, Toyota reliability, easy to take apart/modify
huge c-pillar creates an even larger blind spot, 6th gear for the manual, paint chips easily
