already 4 years old. I was elated until
I took it in 7 times for repairs. Lucky
for me I got a great 3 yr./100,000 mile

screwed!. All the repairs were covered--
but about 9 months later the clutch,
brakes and lights all needed replacing.

Best Features

System, the ride (it's fun if it's a stick shift), the look/design, the space and fuel capacity.

Worst Features
