I have owned this car for 8 years and have truly enjoyed it. It has plenty of power at higher RPM's, yet consistently gets 35 MPG plus. The recarro style bucket seats are comfortable, and with the stiff suspension it handles well too. It is easy to work on with most parts easily accessible. With 4 wheel disc brakes, it stops well also. It was a competitor to the Honda CRX. Because it is a hatchback, it will haul more than would be expected. Some won't believe this, but I hauled a 40 gallon hot water heater still in the box. It was tight, but it fit. The only negatives are: Tires are hard to keep balanced unless using Michelins, and 5 speed does not like hard shifts into 2nd. Some may worry about safety since car is very small and did not have air bags. Overall a very well made little car and good quality and reliability.
