The stearing is very touchy, and all curves should be taken with extra caution
It's very reliable. It was very cheap, that was why i bought it, cheap on gas also. You get great gas mileage. It is a stick shift. The gears shift nicely. When I first bought it, I had to break it in, like it wasn't used to getting into fourth gear and the first few times on the highway you could tellout went used to getting any speed, but it handled nicely. It is very small and cramped quarters, so it wouldn't be useful for a family, but for a single person I suppose out would be just fine. It handles sharp curves a little shakily, so it's best to go real slow around curves, but you don't get the tippy feeling as you might think you sound when taking sharp curves. There is no air conditioning so it does get pretty hot in the summer time, especially with the all black interior. The car is so little that yippy feel like a midget compared to all other cars on the road.
