ReviewI bought this car new in the summer of 2000. Performance is great for such a small car. However, I am unhappy with the current resale value of my vehicle. Price when I first bought it, was well over $14,000 (got pretty much all the upgrades). I put $4,000 down, financed the rest for 4 years, and now, with a little more than 2 years left on the loan, I am about $100 away from being upside down on the loan! Of course, if you're considering this car used, it'll be a great deal for you. Just don't get it new, like I did, because its value drops like a rock (probably because this is one of those love-it-or-hate-it cars).
Best FeaturesGreat Gas Mileage. Center positioning of speedometer and other gauges (looks weird initially but comes in really handy once you get used to it). Good acceleration from 0 to about 40MPH.
Worst FeaturesChange styling somewhat (more conservative), so the car will appeal to more people, and won't lose its value as quickly as it currently does. Power Windows, Mirrors (at least as an option).
