"I bought this used because I always wanted one. Where I live it is very hilly and most roads are 2 lane. I wanted this car for the power and handling. It is like driving a skate and I have to be careful to keep it under speed limit. I can pass anything I come up on in the very short passing zones. However it is expensive to maintain. Tires cost me $600 for 2, the air bag sensor keeps Coming on (a known problem with 2002) I have to unplug the radiator fan if I drive it in 90 degree weather to turn it off and not run the battery dead. The windshield cracked when I hit a pot hole and I had to hot wire the trunk release. Reliability is not its strong point :) but I bought it to drive and with the 6 speed and turbo going down country lanes knowing that yes you can make that curve so I am quite happy with it."

"Great driving car. Has some road noise. Very responsive steering and braking and shifting up and down . Reminds me of driving a go-cart. Easy to get in and out of. Does well in north Idaho winter weather. Consistent 30 mpg and on trips I've gotten 32 mpg. Needs premium fuel. I run non alcohol premium. Never a problem finding a parking space big enough."

"Love this car. This was a birthday present to me in 2002. I have the black checkered squares on the roof. Garage parked every night. Great mileage."
