This is a good car. Aging makes it a
good initial value. Decent looking car.
Performance is very good. AWD is a
wonderful feature. Handles nimbly,
great in the sand and on dirt roads
when pushed. Cabin design is simple,
functional, not foofy. Not spacious.
Get the bigger wagon if you have a
family. However Fitting 4 can be tough
for the 2 people in the back. Spritey,
not fast. Versatile, not oversized.
Good blend of low level performance,
utility, and fuel economy, value.
There are more cars that do more and
have more, but you'll have to spend a
Simple interior. Good handling. fun
to drive if your used to small, low
powered cars. Engine sound.
Bad wheel covers. Clutch out early.
Larger back seat. Light in cargo
area. More horsepower. (they did this
on newer models though). Frameless
doors sound cheap.
