This is a fantastic automobile. I've
had mine for almost two years and it's
been a great experience. I got one of
the first ones and the only "problem"
I've had was an overly sensitive
system control computer which
displayed "check engine" warnings
after prolonged high-rpm driving. The
car was out of commission for a few
days to have the unit re-programmed
and I haven't had a problem since.
The car is roomy (for a compact),
comfortable and. most importantly, a
blast to drive.
The engine - it's a gem.
Medium criticism: the stock tires are
horrible. I replaced mine after only
18k miles of, mainly, commuting to
work and no racing. Minor criticism:
the 5-speed is not the slickest
shifting unit out there.
