A high performance bargain
I bought the car for $2500 in November of 2002 with no second gear, and by December I had completely destroyed the transmission.
Water pump went out two weeks after the new transmission was in.
If cheap speed is what you are looking for then here it is. These cars are fast four cylinders! having the turbo is great for racing at any speed or just passing that semi on the freeway. All Wheel Drive is awesome, nobody can out launch this car. Rev it to red-line, dump the clutch, and all grip no slip. so if your into import tuning, forget all the stuff you saw in Fast and the Furious. Honda's are nothing to these D.S.M.s (Diamond Star Motors).
But these car are not for families at all the back seats shouldn't be called seats, maybe luggage spots. The back seats are small and uncomfortable, The front seats are fine without rear passengers.
My point: this car is made for one thing only... being fast!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
