Great, But Not Perfect

ReviewLove this car. Sporty, but versatile; I can just throw my mountain bike inside. I have the 24V version with 200 HP and it's SWEET! Very torquey yet smooth; feels like a much bigger motor. ESP is great and has saved me many times as has the ABS. Stock suspension was way too mushy for me so I lowered the car with Eibach springs, and Koni Sport shocks. Now, handling is a match for the motor at the expense of ride comfort. Only complaints I have are interior squeaks and rattles, and the soft wheels. Already had to replace 2 because of potholes. My Monsoon has been great, but could use better bass.
Best FeaturesMotor, styling, hatchback, interior finish, fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesBetter bass response on Monsoon, suspension that matches the motor. Needs better mileage or more power for the given mileage.
