honestly, i find it to be an attractive car in it's 4 door incarnation. the 2 door looks a bit too much like the newest solara for my tastes, but overall, i find this car to be SUCH an improvement over the worthless grand am. the interior is of much higher quality, and it has a fairly potent v6. i haven't had a chance to drive one so i don't know about how the ride quality, but overall i am impressed with it from a spectator point of view. anyone have any experience with these? i'm sure you could buy one of these in a year or two for sub 10k, and barring any major mechanical issues, it would be a great value ride. input?
