Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Good seating room in a small, nimble car.
Cons: Lack of coin, etc. trays on the brake/tranny console.
Advice: Compare with other similar vehicles.Seats are a little stiff but comfortable. The suspension lets the driver feel the bumps in the road, but that is to be expected in a small, sporty car. Very good headroom due to the height-adjustable driver's seat; also good legroom in the back seat even with the driver's seat all the way back (I'm 6'2' with a tall upper body and I fit this car well). There is limited areas to put your 'stuff' so will have to settle with the glovebox and a pull-out tray under the passenger seat. The car is fairly quick and nimble due to the 2 litre/141 hp engine. It is relatively well loaded with creature comforts (the only options are floor mats, transmission, and external colors).
