Cons: "too low of a front bumper, seat heating stays on"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"It is a jewel on the road. I like the battery. It gives the car a good take off, better than most four cylinder cars. The battery kicks in when we need extra ump. There are a couple of little nit-picky things that I don't like. The main thing is that the front bumper is too low. that may not be a problem in some cities, but in ours they love to put dips in the road to help the water drain across the road as if it could not get there by itself. It is annoying to have to slow down to practically a stop to get across the dips. Another thing is that the heated seats in the front and in the rear are nice, but they do not shut off automatically when the car shuts off. That is they shut off, but they are still set to come on again when the car starts back up. We can notice that they are still on in the front seat, but we don't always look in the back seat to make sure the seats are not heating up. If children play with the buttons and leave them on, it is difficult to remember to get them turned off. The gas mileage is not quite what they advertised, but it is pretty good -- about 30 to 35 around town and about 40 to 45 on the freeway. All in all, we love the car."
"This is the first import I've purchased, and what a great decision! The car's exterior design is marvelous: people have actually mistaken it for a much pricier vehicle (Lexus)! Also, the exterior design makes the car definitely stand out from the crowd.
The interior design is done very nicely as well.
I purchased the 2.0L Turbo, and the performance is awesome!"
