Fun little hatchback for a daily driver!

ReviewI purchased this car used in 2005 with about 52,000 on the ticker and it was in reasonable shape at the time. After some finesse on my part and a new set of wheels and tires (mine were out of round and the tires were wrecked due to bad alignment, it really started to come along. Besides some maintenance like a new fuel filter, belt tensioner and serpentine, and new lift gate shocks; the car is dead nuts reliable. The gas mileage in mine is good but I see only an average of about 25-26 and 28-30 on the highway. With the black leather interior it is HOT HOT in the Texas sun but the A/C does a great job of cooling you down and keeping comfortable. I am happy and will drive into the ground!
Best FeaturesI am a big fan of the entire power train. Many don't like the high and narrow power band but I do! It is like two cars: calm and easy to drive during the week and a screamer you want to flog on the weekends (and at the occasional autocross event!).
Worst FeaturesThe A/C vents don't direct air well on the driver. I am 6' and with the wheel where I like it I don't get as much cold air as in many other cars. The overuse of plastic is somewhat annoying but I don't think it is that big a deal because they don't make it anymore!
