GREAT little car. Everything you NEED, nothing you don't. I needed great gas mileage, bullet-proof reliability and a sunroof and that is exactly what I got. I had a 97 Jetta and it let me down monthly. Fed up, I sold it and bought this until I could find a clean 318 BMW. I love this car so much, I never bought the Bimmer. I have taken this car from Vancouver BC to San Diego every year.
Never had a single problem! (200,XXX miles!), gas mileage, body lines, sunroof, peppy, cost of parts.
Very easy to dent - body panels made of VERY thin metal, seats are uncomfortable after two hours, interior carpet is weak.
