I am the original owner of this car.
It has been a great car for 10 years
over many types of terrain. Great
mileage, minimal maintenance. The only
problems are a hard to fix AC leak and
door powerlock failure (can now only
lock/unlock at driver's side but still
functions--a little inconvenient but
why pay to fix?!). These are minor
issues for a car that has been totally
reliable & fun to drive for 10 years.
Has a moon roof - use it all the time -
Minimal gas consumption.
Good pick up for a 4c engine.
Lots of room in hatcback w/ seats down.
There was some design flaw - you can't
have the rear windows ONLY down
without getting a weird wind thumping
sound - must have front window or moon
roof cracked for rear windows to be
open without it being really annoying.
I assume they fixed this in later
