Pros: Great performance & economy
Cons: It's not gorgeous.
Advice: Buy it.I own a 400 hp pickup & a $57M Caddie, so when I was given this car while my pickup was being serviced, I almost fainted. However, after driving the hell out of this little car for 4 days; I just wish I could justify buying one, just for the fun of it. It looks small from the outside, but it has plenty of room inside; alot more than my Caddie! It drives like the devil itself. I had it up to 80 mph & it felt like it could go alot faster without much effort. It handles well & whether turning or stopping, it always felt like it was under good control. I didn't compute the mileage but after 4 days of use, it took less than $5.00 to fill up the tank. I had a plain Jane model which isn't gorgeous, but I've seen more expensive models that looked pretty good. Again, considering what I'm used to driving, this little car left me flabergasted. I can't comment on how well it holds up after serveral years though.
