Great for City, No Gas Saver When Traveling

ReviewI bought this 5 speed manual model because most of the time I am driving in the city, great performance, handling, brakes etc. But when traveling the gas economy is very low, especially if you go between 55-80MPH, because the 5 speed is too short, the engine runs at 4K RPM when you are around 75 mph. That means no more than 24 MPG, same at the city. The rest is great.
Best FeaturesAll in general, sound system, stability, 4 cylinder engine is very powerful, interior-exterior quality is great, best city car.
Worst FeaturesBetter 5th speed ratio, too short!
