No rubber smoke but it more than makes up for it in other ways.
If you try real hard you may just get a chirp on launch though.

Just ticked over 3k this week. It's my daily driver and am more impressed with its design and engineering everyday! 36MPG highway, 30MPG city, fits a bike, or golf bag and cart or even a wife and kid.

8/10

5/24/16

Still say it needs about 20 more torque. MPG could be 24 city/34 hwy better. Paint could be a tad tougher.

No other complaints. Just a review after owning car for 1yr+

Still love it. I think here and there on what if I traded it for a Mustang or WRX... then laugh and tell my car I love it.

Oh god.

Dunno if you recall but my original plan was to wait until this past April to get the car. That would have been an eternal wait due to me driving a shitty corolla around.

I was satisfied enough to trade it away on an evo.

It's starting to get really cold especially in the mornings, so I am very satisfied with my heated seats.

Also after putting 4000 kms on the clock now, gotta say I love my car. Never skips a beat and always makes me smile.
