I have had two other turbo 4cyl cars
over the years and this one appealed to
me. The looks are kinda cool and
performance is stellar for a car of
it's size. I ended up with the stereo
upgrade by accident and do not regret
it, although it is slow to switch
between discs it has very good quality
sound. It is a little tight getting
into for a 6'2", 245 pound guy, but
seating position and interior room are
fine. I felt that the smallish front
doors were a little price to pay for
the total package. The wagon is about
100 dollars a year more to insure than
a Ford Focus, not bad for 100 more
horses and lots more car overall.
Pleasant exhaust note, nice seats and
room to drop my gear in the back
without having to dig heavy boxes or
bags out of a trunk. Plenty of zip
without attracting the attention of
traffic cops or teenagers.
Bigger front doors and more factory
insturmentation. This car really needs
a boost and oil pressure gauge. ANY
dealer installed equipment was at rip-
off prices locally.
