Light, narrow and quick (once you get
past the turbo lag). Excellent for the
price, more fun and nicer than a
Subaru, etc. Performs comparably to
the BMW 3-series wagon, the MB C-class
wagon, or the Audi A4 series for much
less $. Handles well on snow.
Only really irritating problem is soft
paint. In the western US where sand is
used on roads, this car will show a lot
of pockmarks. Had to have the hood
repainted with a more durable enamel,
and a plastic bra is a must.
