I like this car a lot despite all the problems I've had with it. Acceleration and shifter action are nice, although low end torque is non-existent. You really have to stomp on the accelerator to get performance. Interior quality and dashboard look great to me, and the car's external lines are sporty without looking too ricey a la WRX or Evo. One of the windows came chipped, rubber door linings weren't installed properly, one window was scratched on the inside with a 3" gash. Also, the trunk doesn't quite close solidly. I have to exert more effort to close it than I should. I also hear a clicking noise in my left front shock whenever I hit a bump and have the steering wheel turned slightly. Made in Canada Made in Japan. All this is annoying, but the engine is quite something. I'm averaging 23mpg in mostly city driving, which is a worse than I thought I'd get. Final thing that is really annoying is that the a/c is weak when it's hotter than 92 degrees outside. Very weak compared to other cars in similar conditions. I have to have the a/c on max at the coldest setting sometimes, and it STILL isn't that cold. Weird.
