After flipping cars every 6 mos for the
past 2 years, I think I've finally
found the right balance of everything!
Has plenty of room (like my old
4Runner), handles great (close enough
to my A4), gets great gas mileage (MUCH
better than my V6 Accord)...This car
has handling, convenience and character
to spare! The boxer engine is just a
gem - likes to rev, rock and roll! The
2.5L engine has PLENTY of power and
torque, gets better gas mileage than
the 2.0L blown version, and costs about
HALF to insure. Skip the WRX, skip the
9.2X and check this one out - you won't
AWD!!, great visibility, handles
awesome, love the quirky styling,
practically strangles the road...all
this for WELL UNDER $20K? SOLD!
Needs a sunroof. Crossbars for the roof
rack should be standard. Interior is a
bit bland, but nothing unacceptable.
You won't win any stoplight drag races,
but that's not what this version of the
car is about. The cupholders do suck,
but it isn't a problem day-to-day.
