ReviewI bought this car used with 86000 miles, now has 96000 miles.The cars only issue is a whining noise from the engine that I hear only when it is cold.This noise goes away after about 3-4 min of warm up.I live in Montana where there are serious long distance stretches of open highways and I just love the way this car holds the road it feels almost as if its on rails but still rides comfortable.The 250 hp engine really gives it up when you need it.The manual transmission is such a perfect match to the engine that turbo lag is never an issue.After 4 1/2 months I still love it every time I get behind the wheel.Now winter is here and the car is proving its all weather capabilities in the snow.
Best Features250 hp turbo charged engine,smooth shifting perfectly matched transmission,dual mass flywheel that dampens out clutch chatter,road holding abilities,big brakes for great stopping power,snow and ice capabilities(with dedicated snow tires),comfortable seating.
Worst FeaturesNeeds HID headlights,a more durable coating on the inside door handles,not so sensitive remote(activates while with just the natural pressure of being in a pocket).Don't lose your spare key a replacement from the dealer is $160.
