This car is a great handling little go-kart. The power could be better, but that is from someone used to having a car 0-60 in under 5 seconds. This car cannot do that. First thing you MUST do is get sticky tires (I went with Bridgestone RE-71's) and the entire car changes dramatically. If you get normal tires, it is a sloppy drifter car. RE-71's or Dunlop Z2's make it grip and drive like an S2000.
This is a small car. Do not buy this if you are over 250lbs or over 6'4". Children under 12 can ride in the back seat, but the people in the fronts seat will be less comfortable if they require leg room. I have fit my whole family (wife and 3 kids) in the car when I HAD to because the SUV got a flat.
If you love traveling with friends (keep in mind a few) its great, it comfortable and drives like a sedan, but can speed like a coupe. I included cabin noise in the Cons section because it does get a bit noisy, however that could be from my choice in tires. Fuel economy as well is included because that depends on how you drive the car. I have the Stick-shift version and so long as i keep the RPMs in a reasonable range the gas goes the distance, but like most i have a lead foot.

Surprisingly fast. Hugs road like sports car. Went into center ditch at 70 mph and stability control kept car upright and in line back on highway. Saved my bacon! Terrific in wet weather. Traction control and amazing ABS brakes maintain safety. Love upright seating position, backup camera omits blind spot, cavernous inside, 32+ mpg on highway cruise, killer stereo, super smooth transmission, not even a burned out bulb so far.
