This is the most fun I've had driving a vehicle at this price point. It is unexpectedly peppy. The interior space is quite surprising and roomy. Gas mileage is excellent (around 30mpg). The sound system (6 CD changer) is amazing. It is like driving a huge boom box.
Handling is quick and responsive.Interior room is more than ample for my needs.
Cruise control would be welcomed. Some additional amenities such as larger visor mirrors and better interior lighting would be an improvement.
