"This is a nearly perfect vehicle. It has outstanding value, reliability, economy, handling, comfort, build quality, versatility, safety, and cool factor. I get 24-25 mpg on average and have gotten as high as 28 mph averaging 79 mph on long trips! After one year of ownership, it was actually worth more than what I paid for it!
I like the versatility of the rear seats that recline, slide fore and aft, and tumble forward for remarkable cargo capacity, tops in its class. Air bags all around, ABS, 4 wheel disks, fwd, and ESC add to the feeling of confidence. The engine produces plenty of pep and torque at low rpm's for a good take off if needed, and the 5 speed automatic adds to the economical performance.
I have a few nit picks. I'd rather have a hatch than a door at the rear, and I'd like the seat to slide back a bit more, and it's a bit of a reach to the radio buttons.
I believe this car will become a sort of collector's item as it is the last mini-truck, squared-off, upright macho body design before the 2007 jellybean redesign, so it appeals more to men.
Whoo Hoo! I'm so glad I bought this car."
