| ||General comments?||I love this car! Of course, being my first car could have something to do with it, but the car does have alot to offer. It is very fun to drive, looks like a luxury car, and gets pretty good gas mileage, too. What more could a student ask for?|
On one hand, the 2.0L engine is surprisingly quick, easily satisfying a small addiction to speed, and a slight distaste for Riceboys with their Honda Civics. What could be more fun than watching some little astonished punk's face as you leave his "hooked-up" car in your dust?
On the other hand, if you happen to have a job at a respectible place (translation for students: somewhere besides McDonald's), the outside luxury-like appearance does help a little in boosting one's confidence whilest parking next to your boss's Lexus. Always a plus.
The only major blessing and curse would be the car's relatively small marketshare. Most aftermarket products are for other model cars, or later years. This makes it especially difficult to find much info and upgrades on the car.
Overall, however, I thoroughly enjoy this car, and would recommend it to all of my friends. I expect it to last much longer than the 186k that's on it now.
