Everyone who sees this car has something good to say about it. Young and old people compliment me all the time on how beautiful the car looks.
The car handles great.
The brakes are very responsive.
Amazingly, the car handled very well in the snow. I was extremely impressed with it the whole winter. Even with high speed tires, I never lost traction. I live in Michigan, so there was plenty of snow to test this.
This car was my first manual transmission, and I will never go back to an automatic- it was so fast I beat a brand new BMW off the line.
The sound system is awesome. In the 8 months I've owned this car, my CD player has never skipped no matter how big of a pothole I drive over. The quality of the sound is great too. The bass sounds great.
This is the most important reason I love this car. Last week a person ran through a stop sign in front of my car. It was raining, but I still could jerk the wheel enough not to hit her head-on. I hit her on an angle going 50 mph, and the front drivers side of the car was completely destroyed. When my family saw my car, they thought I was dead- seriously. My only injury was a small burn on my arm from the airbag and a stiff neck from the impact. My little brother was in the passenger seat- not wearing his seatbelt. His only injury was a sprained thumb. This car was without a doubt what saved my brothers life. The car was designed to take the impact- and designed so the passengers don't. If the tires locked or lost traction in the rain, I would have hit the SUV head on and my little brother could have flown through the windshield. I thank this car for my brother's life- there was $10,000 in damage, but we were back to work and school the next day.
I could not think of one thing I would change on this car.
