ReviewI bought this car brand new in 2002. At first, everything was great. Good gas mileage. Sporty little car. Great for zipping around town and did well on road trips. However, it started having all sorts of problems after about 18-24 months, beginning with the "small" and annoying (head lights constantly burning out, display lights inexplicably going off and coming on, airbags needed replacement without ever having been used or the car being in an accident). Then, around 65,000 miles, the check engine light was constantly on. Then, the transmission blew and it needed a new timing belt, air sensor, alternator & more. It has cost me thousands to repair and has become a money pit.
Best FeaturesHolds an amazing amount of stuff. Good gas mileage. Comfortable to drive.
Worst FeaturesConvenience features: better cup holder; option for leather interior; option for 6-disc CD changer, satellite radio & MP3 jack. Performance, reliability & mechanical: drastically improve the quality of mechanical parts & function. A car that has been used gently shouldn't be dying at 60,000+ miles.
