Solid car with lots of room

ReviewJust bought this car used. It's very solid and basic, much like the imports of the 70s and 80s. For a car with such little power, it's surprisingly fun to drive. The interior room is simply amazing. It's like a theater with 6 screens. The car seems to grow magically when you get in. I always tell friends that it's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Driving position is comfortable but you have to get used to the position of the gauges. The engine is peppy and fun to rev on city streets but merging on the interstate can be a challenge. This is allot of car for the money. I've found that it's several thousand less than a comparable Honda Element, Fit, or Toyota Matrix.
Best FeaturesEasy access doors, and interior room. The engine compartment is clean, making the car easy to work on.
Worst FeaturesNeed an extra dome light on the lift gate is needed, and cruise control would be nice. The omission of a sunroof on this car is downright criminal. The roof is big enough to accommodate 2 of them. This car could also use at least 50 more horses under the hood.
