"Really liked owning this car since june of 06. Handy size with fold down real seat for camping and other gear.
Nice styling, always proud of the looks even as it ages.
nice paint quality held up well over years.
handles great and cvt is smooth and reliable.
good mpg. at about 26. combined.
bad Gas cap caused some of the biggest diagnostic bills for engine light.
back seat very uncomfortable... flat seat and straight up back rest..even though you can adjust the back rest tilt.
poor wind tunnel design ... cannot open back windows driving 30mph without intense oscillating air pressure wave ...enough to hurt your ears.
worst feature of a nice little car is the unbearable road noise on the hyway...almost so loud you opt not to have the radio on at hyway speeds..... except on the smoothest of new pavement."
Cons: "ride is not the smoothest and a little noisy"

"The car is easy to handle and park. It has been very dependable and gets good gas mileage. It has had some brake issues but they were taken care of. All in all we like the vehicle. It is not the quietest car and the ride is not overly smooth but we have enjoyed the car"
"I've had this car for a few years now and I've taken it through a lot of highway miles, road trips, and my four year old. It's super reliable, comfortable, and a good ride. The two tone seating looks really nice and interior still feels and looks like a brand new car."
