"i bought this car for one reason, economic value.
it has turned out to be a great choice. i opt-ed for the basic package, as this was the most economical, it made the most sense, because you can't justify the alloy wheels and rear spoiler adding to the economic operation of the vehicle.
the fuel economy is listed as 25/33 mpg. for the manual transmission, but i have been driving with fuel economy in mind, for over 50,000 miles, and i am averaging 46.7 mpg. (according to the average mpg. gauge on the dash, as well as my own calculations.)
the amount of space afforded by the magic seating system, is amazing to say the least. i have moved a full sized stove, for a friend with no problem.
cabin road noise would be the most likely "con" i would point out to potential buyers, although, it is better than i noticed in both the nissan versa, and chevy aveo that i test drove before this purchase.
i waited to review this until now, because i was sure something would lessen my enthusiasm, but, to date, my over all satisfaction is growing."
