Good city/commuter car

Bought my car used with 10,000 mi on it. It is a CE w/stick shift. Likes: Excellent gas mileage(35mpg city/40mpg hwy},a comfortable/roomy interior, good-sized trunk,good power,good ride, & looks like a Lexus IS. Dislikes: Lots of road/wind/engine/tire NOISE at any speed above 60mph. THe noise is so bad that the radio/cd player are nearly USELESS on long trips at interstate speeds. Anti-lock brakes/power windows/locks should have been STANDARD on this model. Steering wheel should telescope as well as tilt. I like the car for what it is, but will not buy another. My next car will be a Camry or another make vehicle that is quieter at highway speeds.

Buy this car if you enjoy watching paint dry or if you consider vehicles to be like appliances. Don't buy this car because you might save 3 mph over a car more enjoyable. Buying this care was one of the worst decisions I've ever made. Boring interior and exterior styling, weak horsepower, deathly dull driving experience.
