It attracts a lot of attention from young guys.

It is great on gas. Right now it doesn't always start right away. It is not quite big enough for my grandkids. I can pack a lot of junk into it. I'm tired of the Manual transmission.

- Rondi s

It is a manual transmission which is rare.

My car has had low maintenance over the 15 years of the car. It is still good on gas and I really enjoy driving it. The style of the type s still allows it to be a nice looking car.

- John D

It has held up well over the years. Continues to look sharp and great to drive.

I have had my car for 15 years. It continues to be a fun car to drive. Over the years besides normal ware, I have replaced the starter and an oxygen sensor.

- Susan S
