Neat car, fun to drive, a little
different - not a lot on the road.
Throttle has an inherent lag which is a
bit annoying and takes a little practice
to drive smoothly. This is especially
true when cold. Heated seats are a joy.
The interior heating system provides
way more heat and faster than you'll
experience in any other brand. Parts
prices are reasonable. Shop charges can
be high so it's helpful if you can do
some of the rudimentary work yourself.
Fit, finish and rustproofness are
outstanding as is visibility. Brakes
are above average. Very comfortable and
stable vehicle. It's heavy weight
contributes a lot to that.
Ease of access to all areas for
maintenance - very user friendly design.
Manual trans - fun and economical., 5
cyl engine - lots of torque and
