One of M's co-workers bought the coupe to commute with and really likes it. M has been looking to trade the Saturn for one...I don't think the little 4 cylinder in it would pull a trailer very far. especially if loaded with 4 adults plus gear...That's why I bought the quad cab...I could have one at the hive soon Shan...keep us updated on yours...

I'm in the minority, but I love them. Granted, I'm a recovering stoner, though.

It definitely needs different wheels. .preferably powder coated, IMO.

Those weren't the first choice, just what they had in stock. Easy enough to change them, though.

Change those and you're all set, or just get them powder coated I'd think.

I like 'em....seem like a good value for the $$$.

Also, a lot nicer looking then the Honda Element.

YA THINK???

I absolutely detest the way those things look. They make the Honda Elements look good by comparison. That said...I ain't the one buying the thing If it's got all the goodies you want for that sort of price, I don't see why not.

Although I would test drive it with any members of your family that will be riding in it to make sure it's comfy for everyone, in any seat.
