I got my Paseo when it was 9 years
old, and had 92K miles. I never had to
do any repairs, all I've been doing is
changing oil, and other fluids.
Mine was automatic, but never the less
it had enough torque to accelerate
faster than civics.
Handling is perfect, you can feel the
car as the part of your body.
Especially you can have a lot of fun
driving it on the snow or ice.
I measured the fuel efficiency:
highway: 320 miles per 9 gallons
city: 250 miles per 9 gallons.
you make all necessary calculations.
People higher than 5'0" will have
troubles on the back seat. Paseo is
only for two people.
