Despite the car being an older generation, it runs so smoothly. I have had this car now for over five years, and it has not failed me once. I find that with it being an older car, I am replacing some minor parts, but it still isn't too expensive. But inside the car, I would admit there isn't as much space and storage areas as to what can be found in the modern day car. But this car is a nice little feature and reminder that smaller cars can still get us from A-B. It is brilliant on gas, and it handles so smoothly. I find driving it to be a complete pleasure. Although for passengers in the back of the car, it may be uncomfortable for a long journey, but nevertheless, it is a great road-tripping vehicle. Further on to the comfort rating, the seats are a nasty material which make it diffi... (more)
Story
We drove down to Nashville from Cleveland. It was a brilliant drive -- seven hours straight and not once did the car ever overheat or have any problems. We have since done this on numerous occasions now.
Pros
The top things about this car is its timeless classic feature and the handling of the car. Furthermore, I think the gas is brilliant -- considering it is a seventeen-year-old engine.
Cons
The worst things about the car has to be the comfort for passengers, because the drivers seat is the only 'electronically' motorized seat in the car, meaning the other seats in the car are stationary and unable to move apart from forwards or backwards. The material is also horrible and makes keeping the car clean such a hardship.

The car looks really nice, nicer than a Lexus to me. It runs like a dream and doesn't use too much oil. It has went from one side of Washington State to the other and only broken down once and that was only a fan belt had to be replaced. I like the inside of it, and you can get anything in the back seat. I got a 220 gallon glass fish tank in the back of the car with other packages from shopping too. The car tells you everything that is wrong with it so you don't have any surprises. Only thing is, the car will constantly say the doors are open when they are not. It also will turn on the "check engine light" constantly if you don't close the gas cap very tightly. It runs so smooth. I don't need a fancier car. It is 16 years old and still looks as good as the newer, fancier cars, but it i... (more)
Story
Just when the car was brought, I was embarrassed to show my family because I thought they would be mad at me, since it looks more expensive than it really is. I thought they would say I was trying to live beyond my means, or be uppity, so I was ashamed to tell people which car was mine.
Pros
The sleek, long sides of the car remind me of the Magnum. It is more feminine looking though, so I like the way it looks. It runs really well because everything is electric. It seems to know every corner and curve, because it glides seamlessly. It has a very room back seat, although it doesn't look like it from the outside.
Cons
The lights don't turn off manually. You have to let the car turn them off. Also, they come on automatically. Not great if you are trying to creep up on your ex boyfriend or avoid the police. I wish they would not automatically come on or go off. The car will tell you the doors are ajar, even when they are securely closed.
