"This car is awesome! Super roomy, cute and reliable! If I had to pick one thing that could be improved it would be the little console areas, the one on the dash won't even hold a CD,it's too short. the one in between seats seems like its a little too far back. That is all I can think of. I've only had this car a few months, bought it with 36,000 miles on it and now it has 39,000. Before I bought this vehicle I would stop people in parking lots who had them and they all said they loved theirs. I can see why! I really believe that you would love it too, I say go for it!"

Pros: "Bluetooth, MP3, sit high"

Cons: "Driving experience during the day and the night."

"Agreed with others on loud environment - car is cheap. Harsh ride, weak engine. Gas mileage - can be good only on steady 45-55 mph ride - can be up to 33-34 mpg. Hwy - truly depends on speed and style, mpg can easily go down to 24 mpg if the speed is around 75-80 mph. New car had bad tires, and I had a small accident sliding toward a vehicle on a wet road going 20 mph. Replacing tires fixed the issue. The headlights have a poor adjustment. The service on local dealership is tired on my complaints, but the answer that the lights are meeting the specs. Driving at night I feel blind. Driving during wet weather I feel insecure, wet nights - I feel unfortunate to drive. The car withstand a deer run and hit to the car side - I feel grateful on happy ending. A/C, heater - sometimes it gets foggy inside with no reason. I suspect worn window seals but not sure. Overall - it is a car that will bring you from the point a to the point b with some comfort, usb stick can play your favorite MP3s but be somewhat careful. The car is easy to park."

Pros: "MPGs, driving position, surprising quality"

Cons: "slow acceleration, engine noise"

"Good quality unit. MPGs overall is 27...mostly small town driving with some regular highway trips. 30+ MPG during fall trip to Florida. Upright seating. Sits taller than a sedan but shorter than a small SUV. 2.0 engine is adequate when combined with automatic. Good little "grocery getter" and daily commuter. Don't buy it for luxury, buy it for practical, reliable and good MPGs-then you'll be pleased with the quality build!"
