"I have now had the car for a little over three months, and have abot 4500 miles on. I just completed a 2500 miles round trip to Florida. My son did half the driving. He is 6'4" and had no issues with headroom. The seats were more comfortable than I thought they would be on such a long trip. We had traffic, so the first day was about 15 hours and the second day 12 hours. Yes, my back was hurting after I got to Florida, but I have arthritis in my spine and my back would be hurting no matter what I drove down in.
Handling, braking, heated seats, climate control system are all exceptional. Power and luggage space are good too.
The only complaint I have is that the fan cycles on and off about every ten seconds when the car is idling. It vibrates enough to be felt through the steering wheel. That, and the fact that it is noisy on rough, concrete roads.
Highway mileage has been very good 24-27 MPG at 65-80 MPH. Around crowded suburbs the mieage has been disappointing, only getting 16-17 MPG. Hopefully that will improve as the engine breaks in.
Oil life indicator shows 60% life left before change is due, so I'm guessing it will be due at around 9000 miles.
I love the XM satellite radio!"
"I love this car!! I used to have a Toyota Matrix and i loved it. It was small, good gas mileage. But then my mom got one of these and i just had to have one!! I got it and i love it!! I only have one complaint: the gas mileage is not as great as i think it should be. I like how it tells you how much you have till your tank is empty though. I think the gas mileage part is my own fault though.. Because my mom has the exact same car (different color) and she gets way better GM than i do. But overall, it's the best car i have had! I am a fast driver and this one gains speed and takes corners like a dream!! I love how roomy it is and that it's still small.. :D"
