Given the chance, BUY IT.
December 27, 2012
I got this car when my grandfather died a little over 3 years ago. I'm really rough on this car (I drive it like a new car, basically). Even though I drive like a mad man, it still runs like a beauty. She's never laid down on me. I've had to replace my front axle twice, but that's only because of rough terrain and stuff like that, not because of the car itself. But this car can get up to 40MPG if you drive it correctly. It's really light, so driving past tractor trailers aren't exactly a thrill ride. But all-in-all, I have zero complaints about this car. It's definitely the best car for a new driver, too. It handles WONDERFULLY. I drive fast, and driving in curves is a dream. Also, there are very few blind spots. And the two that I have noticed are very small blind spots. The only downfall is that even a car door can dent this car. My car has never been wrecked (other than my husband got rear-ended in it. All it did was chip the paint. And it was a hard impact), so I don't know how it handles in a bad wreck. I hope this review helps! Seriously though, if you get the chance to buy this car, definitely get it. You won't regret it one bit! :)
Oh! One last downfall. It is not made for tall people, nor overweight people. I'm 5'3" at 230 pounds, and I fit perfectly. My husband is 6'5" at around 350 pounds, so he tends to be uncomfortable in my car. And there is little-to-know leg room in the back seat. And as short as I am, I have to have the driver's seat ALL the way back...So you can imagine how my husband feels when he drives it, haha. Anyway, if you can deal with that, get this car! :D
