"My highway mileage using cruise controls and no rabbit starts yielded 40+ miles per gallon all my driving. In town (smaller towns) was 35 and in big cities with all the starts and stops and waiting was 30+. Only reason I am selling is that I need a larger vehicle for long trips away from home. Am staying in the family though as this manufacturer's warranties and products are great!"

"My very first car, very attached to it. Pros: drives great, spacious interior, nimble exterior, spacious trunk, great gas mileage even after all this time, handles all weather well, great value, you get more than you pay for. Cons: temperamental about cheap gas (only if there is water in the gas, this has been a problem in recent years) break lights replaced by recall, antenna doesn't reach as far of stations as other cars. All in all best car I could ask for."

"It has been a great little car that holds a lot more then most think it will. We are trading after 2 years for something larger as we travel from N.H. to Florida twice a year. We have always loved wagons and want another. This is a great small wagon hatchback type car, just too small for our needs right now."

"I got this car brand new in 2009. It was my first brand new car and I was extremely excited! This car has gone above and beyond the call of duty. I feel absolutely safe when driving it. It zips in and out of city traffic with ease. Acceration is more than you would expect."
