The WORST about the for2 is all the other az-hole drivers around me. They treat me like non-existant, cut me off within an inch, tailgate to witin a foot or just plane trying to merge into me. Obsene gestures, curses, Hi-Beams, un-friendly stares... you name it I had it all with this car that I never got while driving a VW Golf.
Here I am just driving my car along the road at traffic speed, what did I do to deserve all the aggression and negativity??
I reserved and waited 10 months for mine. It was great fun to drive but soon I realize every expansion joint hurts my butt and I start to suspend my lower body upon approaching any slightest bump on the road. It has surprising amount of space inside for cargo and passenger. The 3 cylinder provide meager 70 horses but plenty for a 1800lb car. The tranny feel like a newbie driving stick shift, head nods and bobs lots. Brake worked wonderful and saved me many times. On highway speed the wind can move you around a bit but the handling was very predictible so it cancels out the scary factor.
Get this as a 2nd car for pleasure or weekend if you have spare cash but not for long trip. It will do it but doesn't mean it should! Out of the 2 years 16000mi I owned her there was not one reliablity issue with her. I did trade her in a little while back because I am running out of butt for her to trash.
