A fun car that is extremely reliable.
Only had to replace power steering hose
(a common problem, apparently). It is
fun to drive, but not a burner. Very
manuverable and quick; fits in tight
places. The overall design is ahead of
its time, especially the interior with
the climate controls on the instrument
hood. The space is tight but
comfortable, and the hatch has a lot of
Design, fun to drive, and reliability.
Better mileage (needs a sixth gear or
taller gearbox), back seats are useless
unless you're 4 feet with no legs, and
the cupholders suck.
