I bought this car with 60,000 miles from
a graduating med student and so got an
amazing price. It's a great car and a
nice change from my old ford ranger.
AWD is amazing the engine is peppy
unless the a/c is on then in drags a bit
and has to be punched up a bit to
accelerate. Has no glaring problems.
Windshield does whistle a bit with
crosswinds and it has a strange rattle
noise during low end acceleration
sometimes but still runs perfectly. It
corners like it's on rails .
The AWD and low center of gravity make
for fun driving Next time i'll probably
opt for the 227 or 250 hp version b/c
the 165 is a bit slow when beating
someone off the line. 22-28 mpg with an
automatic AWD car? beats the snot out
of a 14 mpg 2WD ranger that cornered
like a bathtub.
There are many options available
including the cd player and moonroof and
foglights etc. So i guess the
windshield noise and cheaper turbo chargers.
