If any of you out there like SPEED,
PERFORMANCE and MODIFICATIONS! Should
go ahead get this car, even with
standard manufacture's specs it will
make you go WOW.......^_^
Also, there are so many aftermarket mod
parts out there that will really amaze
you if you want to put in a little
This car is amazing! AWD and 227 hp.
stock! I wasted a 5.0 mustang
yesterday, and my car is still stock.
So many performance mods for the car
too, if you're a racing enthusiast.
I'm an avid snowboarder, and the car
handles and accelerates superbly up the
mountains, even in the snow. My
Eclipse doesn't compare!
AWD and 227 ponies. 6-disc in dash CD
is convenient. Optional short-throw
shifter and boost guage are a must!
Tires are terrible! Hope you like the
bug-eyes, if not, opt for the '04.
Also, the rear seats don't fold down,
only the center armrest. Nothing a
roof rack couldn't solve however.
what a fun handling car, one of the
best ever, just a same they dont back
it up with a better box/interior and
exterior looks. thought they would
grow on me but they never did, even
the new model falls short in the looks
department tho' a little better.
handling simply superb, and killer awd
launching this car quickly is a
nightmare with the notchy shifter i
have ever used, especially from 1st to
2nd. through in a huge amount of turbo
lag, it means you have to do the boy
racer/kill my clutch revs of 3500 to
get anywhere near the 6sec claimed??
This car handles and accelerates
wonderfully considering it's not a
light car for its size. The engine
has a unique sound and a lot of
torque. The chassis is downright
unflappable, and again, the handling
is simply amazing. I do notice,
however, that the steering is more
vague on the center than I thought,
and the path control is not very
accurate; nonetheless, the weighting
and feel are very good. Build quality
and material is also very good. Front
room is good, but back room is a no-no
for anyone over 5'6". The back seat
is a bit too upright, though
supportive. The trunk is bigger than
I thought. Overall, a very good buy!!
All-wheel-drive, fold-flat back seat,
standard CD-player, gated shifter,
frameless doors, and loads of trunk
space, bug eyes
More power for the stereo system, lack
of center armrest for driver and
passenger, smaller and less plasticky
steering wheel, more rear passenger
room, standard fog lights
