ReviewGreat little car if you want excellent gas mileage, good standard features, and way low price. We looked at all the high mileage cars, except the hybrids, and this was the best bang for the buck. Rides smooth, a little loud under full throttle, but that is to be expected from a 1.5 liter moving 2,000 plus pounds. Drives fine til about 80-85 mph, then it starts to be a little too loud from the engine bay. Put in some dynamat and it might be somewhat quieter.
Best FeaturesCenter mounted speedo and tach, decent sized cup holders, grocery bag holders, color display changes on upgraded sound system.
Worst FeaturesLower it with some springs (improves fuel economy), upgrade the wheels to alloy instead of steel (improves fuel economy and acceleration), and put in a TRD air filter. This maintains factory warranty, and improves airflow.
