First, let me say that I do love my car. It's reliable and safe. The problems that crop up are minor but sometimes annoying. Let me first disagree with some: the armrest is fine, paint is amazing and I don't know what glare they're talking about. That being said, I believe the manual seats could be redesigned, and the cup holder is atrocious. Rear locks do stick. A lot of little nothings. However, it's a blast to drive at speed. It also handles reasonably well and I like the stiff feel. It's also very safe speaking from fender-bender experience. I recommend it as a great college car (when I bought it, anyway).
Safely, performance, handling. Seats.
The plastic parts are tricky, as noted in my review.
