Pros: "good on gas, five seater, very reliable"

Cons: "wide turning radius, DE has no power windows"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I bought this car needing a daily driver to save me some gas money. I got that with this great car. I get about 22-25MPG and that's with out a tune up since I bought it about five months ago. I have recently changed the breaks and the belts. Installed a new stereo and XM receiver. The car runs great, it has a small engine, but that don't matter when your trying to save gas. My only grip is that I have the DE model, so I have no power nothing. It is automatic so that's a plus. I would recommend this for a first car or daily driver."
