The vehicle works very well for how old it is. It has great pickup on flat lands, but sometimes seems to have trouble switching gears when going uphill. For such a small car, it never seemed to get stuck when driving over bumps or in grass. The gas mileage is better than any other car I have ever had. The car feels like it sits too low to the ground. It feels very unsafe in the winter.
Story
I drove from Wisconsin all the way to Maine and back 2 years ago all by myself in the car. I also took a roadtrip with 2 girlfriends to Arkansas.
Pros
The car does not show any rust. The mileage is excellent, making gas very affordable. The car is a very good car to have in the summer. The heat and air conditioning worked fast and great. The car is very small and cute looking. Even after being 16 years old, the car doesn't have an "old" appearance.
Cons
It is very low to the ground, so I would often run over curbs simply because I could not see them. It doesn't feel very safe in the winter because the car tends to slip and slide around on icy roads. The power windows would freeze in the winter and not want to roll down on really cold days, making it impossible to ever go through a drive-thru restaurant or a bank drive-thru. Many passengers complain about not having enough leg room.

My vehicle is getting old and is getting scary to drive. In the winter, the vehicle slides all over the road. I have slid through stop signs and stop lights and I tend to "fish-tail" when turning on icy roads. The car is very low to the ground. If I were to get into an accident with another car, my car would easily get crushed. It does not have four wheel drive. Sometimes I accidentally hit curbs because the car is so low to the ground that I cannot see them. I do appreciate the good gas mileage and the inexpensiveness of filling the tank. There is also enough room to fit five people in the vehicle comfortably.
Story
I drove all by myself all the way to Maine from Wisconsin in my vehicle. On the way I stopped at Niagara Falls and saw the waterfalls. I also took a trip to Nashville, Tennessee with a good friend of mine in this vehicle. We sang songs and had a lot of laughs!
Pros
It is very inexpensive to fill the gas tank. The car gets extremely good gas mileage. The car is cute and little and looks nice. The car has four doors so it is easy to get in and out of and can fit 5 people. There is also a lot of trunk space for storing items.
Cons
The car feels unsafe because there is no four-wheel drive and tends to slip and slide on slick roads in the winter. It is very low to the ground and little, making it hard to see and dangerous in a collision.
