Best Features

The 5sp is smooth and the clutch is easy to use. I love the white gauges with the red back lights. The car handles well. I LOVE the multi adjustable driver seat, could be my favorite feature of the car.

Worst Features

All season tires for climates that get snow! One touch open and close sunroof. More horsepower. Ability to open trunk with remote entry. Put the antenna in the rear glass, mine makes wind noise. 2 door option.
