Plenty of pickup, amazing suspension,
corners on rails, tons of room to put
stuff in back, decent gas mileage.
Handled incredibly well in over a foot
of snow, in rain, in all weather
conditions. AWD is amazing. Drawbacks:
Suspension being so tight causes ride
to be a little stiff for long distance
(worth putting up with), interior
design could be a little better
engineered(no place to put cd's, only
one useful cupholder. In short,
totally worth the price paid for the
fun on tight roads, handling in all
weather, and zip. Eminently practical,
The most fun car I've ever had. This
is the perfect blend of practicality
and performance. It is as close to a
full-on race car as most of us will
ever need, while offering a good deal
of safety and convenience in a very
confidence-inspiring package. You
can't help but love it after you drive
Wonderful engine mated to excellent AWD
system. Will go through the worst of
conditions with ease, or through the
best of conditions very quickly.
Enough cargo space for two people to
haul whatever they need for weeks.
Excellent stock front seats.
Poorly designed cupholders. Gaping
hole in the middle of the windshield
not blocked by sun visors.
Overall a a very nice car. Open road
driving is great, but the turbo lag is
annoying. The power is poor until you
hit 3,000 RPM, then it takes off like a
rocket. Also, the gas mileage is
nowhere near the 20/27 listed on the
sticker. More like 20/23. Also, the
transmission is not that smooth at
times. Overall, though I like the car a
lot and often take the long way home as
long as that way involves lots of hills
Open road driving is excellent and
makes up for the lack of excitement in-
The in-dash 6 CD changer is also very
nice to have. The standard radio needs
a little more power, though.
Gas mileage stinks and the race-
inspired seats are a little too narrow
for my 200 pound butt. Do something
about the turbo lag!
