Glad I have the manual transmission
since it's underpowered. Gas
consumption isn't SUVish, but not
as good as a 4cyl sedan. Can haul quite
a bit of stuff, but it slides around
alot (no stability in cargo area). I
like that you sit higher than regular
cars, but it doesn't drive like large
SUV. Parks like a dream in the city.
Best on city streets, country roads. Ok
on the highway but a bit noisy. Ride
isn't the best -- more trucklike than
carlike. Fun to drive! Very handy for
hauling smaller items, except golf clubs
don't lay flat across trunk - one rear
seat has to be folded up.
Manual Transmission, cruise control very
convenient and steady, fold up seats for
cargo space. Antilock brakes.
Headlamps-leave dark spot,had them
realigned twice/Gearing-almost have to
be stopped for 1st yet 2nd lags at low
speed/Autounlock-on trunk to eleviate
unlocking two doors when placing items
in trunk then getting in drivers
