So ugly it is cute
Pros: read engine
Cons: missing guages on dash .. only fuel is presentI only have 250 miles on the car but it is fun with a capital F. 30mpg on first tank full with city driving and the A/C on. It turns a lot of heads and it puts the fun back in inexpensive driving.
Pros: It's cute!!
Cons: Bumpy RideThis is a great car for commuting and running small errands. It can actually hold a fairly large number of grocery bags or carry-on luggage plus totes for 2 people. The transmission problems some people report are probably because those people have never driven a standard transmission. It is very easy to get used to. The savings in gas compared to what we drove before is actually enough to make the car payment. My partner and I are large people and we fit inside quite comfortably. The only downside is that is a bit of a bumpy ride on secondary roads.
Pros: The MPG
Cons: The SizeIt runs great!
