Nice car if you are buying an used one
Creaking sound from the front bumper. It just became loose due to no good reason.
This car handles much well than the Accord.
Fun to drive. Will take on lots of harsh handling.
The 4 Cyl engine has plenty of torque.
Lots of room in the trunk.
Rear Seat room adequate for three kids or two adults.
Very intuitively laid out driver controls.
Some negative points
- Rear dome light in the cabin would have been a nice touch
- AC could have been more powerful, doesn't cut in the californian summers especially during short trips.
- ABS is missing, which is now standard in all mid-sized cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
