Purchased this car exactly one year ago
used with only 3,000 miles. It is the
GTS model with the 6 speed manual. I
love the looks both inside and out. The
hatchback is a very useful feature not
found on many cars. Handling is superb
and steering precise. But the O.E.M.
tires are not all season and wear very
fast. Performance is great along with
fuel economy. Shifter is smooth most of
time. Stereo is remarkably good with
great bass! Had no problems yet.
The Hatchback is the best and most
useful feature. Great Stereo on GTS
model. Side air bags when ordered. High
A little more grunt down low in the
powerband. Blind spots caused by the
rear pillars(but I guess it wouldn't
look as good if they fixed it).
