- GREAT, RELIABLE FUN CAR
- COULD USE MORE POWER, BUT IT STILL HAS GOOD PICK UP
I'M NOT REALLY A BIG FAN OF THIS CAR CAUSE I'M NOT THAT CRAZY ABOUT THE LOOKS, BUT I HAVE DRIVEN THIS CAR ON VERY LONG TRIPS FOR BUSINESS REASONS AND I WAS REALLY SURPRISED WITH IT. THIS CAR DRIVES VERY SIMILAR TO THE HONDA CIVICS WHICH IS A VERY GOOD THING. IT MAY NOT HAVE THE QUALITY OF A CIVIC BUT ITS STILL VERY GOOD. THIS CAR HAS A VERY PUNCHY TORQUEY MOTOR SIMILAR TO THE VOLKS JETTAS AND ITS ALWAYS WILLING TO MOVE VERY QUICKLY. IT HAS A SMALL WEAK 4 CYLINDER ENGINE BUT WHEN YOU DRIVE THIS CAR YOU WILL FORGET ALL THAT. IT DRIVES LIKE ITS READY TO ACCELERATE TO TOP SPEED AS SOON AS YOU TOUCH THE PEDAL. THIS CAR ALSO HANDLES VERY WELL, ON MY TRIPS I DRIVE ALONG A LOT OF MOUNTAIN ROADS WITH A LOT OF CRAZY CURVES AND THIS CAR TAKES THEM VERY WELL. IT ALSO HAS PLENTY OF CONTROL WITH HARD CORNERING AND BRAKING. THE LAST THING I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION IS THAT THIS CAR GETS GREAT GAS MILEAGE AND IF ANYONE DOUBTS THAT THEN YOU MUST BE ON CRACK CAUSE I DRIVE THIS CAR FOR AT LEAST 2 OR 3 HRS AT 85 TO 90 MPH AND IT USES UP A LITTLE MORE THAN 1/4 OF A TANK.
