It's roomy and comfortable, and very good on the open road. The engine's plenty powerful...but its a bit louder now than when we bought it. The transmission isn't great...its very very clunky, especially from a standing start. The suspension gives quite a nice ride quality, but that makes it a bit wallowy through the bends. On the whole though, not a bad car for the money we paid for it.

Somehow, I don't think it would rate a 10 for several things, like acceleration, ride, front/rear seat shoulder and hip room, rear leg room and luggage space, among other things.
