Very happy with my purchase overall.
Unfortuately, one wheel was unbalanced
by 2.5 oz. when I drove it off the lot,
but did not notice until I was on the
interstate. Initial gas mileage is not
quite as good as expected, perhaps more
time will tell. Also was extremely
difficult to find as a 5-speed manual,
but I eventually got what I wanted
after waiting till 2003 models.
Excellent and responsive engine and
tight suspension, with the cargo room I
was looking for without buying an SUV
Its all too much to list a definitive
Engine is a bit sluggish at low RPM.
Trunk latch is not very convenient,
since you only have so much time to
open it after toggling the interior
switch or pressing the key button.
