Yes. Exactly. Starting this new job was a sudden thing, and something I had to take because it is a step forward in my career. Unfortunately I needed a car right away. I tested 5 or 6 other cars in the same price range, and they all had something wrong with them, this was the best value for the price. If the car lasts me three months, I'm fine with it, I'm going to be making quite good money once my apprenticeship begins, and will definitely upgrade.

Besides which, its quite zippy and fun to drive, compared to my last car, an '89 Mazda 323.

Its just so light and easy to maneuver compared to my old sunbird turbo. That thing felt HEAVY. This thing is light as a feather. The Mazda was small and light too, but I couldn't zip around corners cause the manual steering was a bitch. I mean, its not a rocket or anything, but it has a satisfying amount of go.

I mean the thing only weighs under 2400lbs (2350lbs if you got the LS coupe), even with the 120hp 1.6L it should have a little quick feeling to it like a CRX Si. Definatley a little quicker than an 80hp 323.
