Best Features

I would say it looks good rolling down a hill since it is unlikely to be able to drive it self down but chances are you wont be able to stop at the bottom.

Worst Features

Make a car that will last more then 100K miles would be a good start. Mine has 104K

Of course when the vehicle bounded over the curb and ended up romancing a utility pole you were operating it in a safe and courteous manor. Perhaps you should consider replacing it with a Yugo. One equipped with a NASCAR full racing harness. The only way you will get that up to 60 miles per hour it to drive it off a cliff. Quality automobiles require proper maintenance, which doesn't come cheep. So they are expensive to own. If they don't get proper maintenance they develop problems, imagine that. Now the Yugo on the other hand is such a piece of crap no matter how you treat it will not make it any better. Be happy.
