I love everything about this car --
performance, looks, and reliability.
The V6 w/ 5 spd is awesome. The tranny
is very smooth. The infinity sound
system is sweet! The suspension
handles well, although I wish it were a
little stiffer. I have aftermarket
wheels on it, since the stock wheels
were not my favorite, but other than
that the exterior design of this car is
awesome. The modern look of the
interior and dashboard makes it a fun
car to be in.
The engine, 5 spd tranny, infinity
sound system, styling, and the sound of
the stock exhaust is awesome
relocate the cupholders, telescoping
steering wheel, slightly more head
room, and better turning radius
This is a great looking, great
sounding, pretty fun to drive car.
When I brought it home the first day,
my brother asked me if it came with a
speeding ticket. It just looks like
you should be driving it hard.
I mostly use it on weekends, but
occasionally drive it to work on snowy
days. It handles surprisingly well in
My only doubt in buying this car is
whether it would hold up over the long
run. After almost five years, it's
still doing everything that I expect.
It's nice to have a car that still
catches my eye and makes me glad to
own it two years after it was paid for!
V6 + 5-speed rocks, awesome stereo,
drives great, looks terrific,
hatchback is very versatile
Turning radius is too wide, more
seat adjustment in the base, use
higher quality materials (no hard
plastic), either make a real back seat
or make a two-seater, less road noise,
fewer squeaks and rattles, telescoping
steering wheel, both windows auto
down/up, flat trunk floor
It's been a fun car *and* reliable &
economical to boot. Good-looking and
practical! Have not had any repair
issues even at 75K miles. It is
sporty, yet can be roomy enough in a
crunch. Lower the rear backrests, and
there's considerable luggage space.
Don't like the rear visibility esp.
with the rear spoiler.
Adequate zip, looks, and reliability.
The manual shift stick vibrates funny
sometimes. Poor rear visibility.
