Fast, Fun, Reliable, Go-get-just-about-anything-&-put-it-in-the-back car!

We have loved the reliability of this car, and we have LOVED the acceleration of this little grocery getter! We just wish that they offered a bluetooth or aux connection way back in 2006 when we bought it... Buy one for yourself or your college student.
