Great Car- Fiddly Controls & Bad Mileage

ReviewSteering, handling, engine & braking are perfect. Rides smooth & solid. AWD great in snow/rain. Looks beautiful. Good utility for couple with one toddler. Very happy with purchase. However. Horrible mileage for small car. Avg only 20 mpg hwy (and it was 12-17 during the 1st 1k miles). I don't expect an econ car, but it should come close to advertised. Controls are fiddly. Rear win washer dribbles into 1 corner and the headlt washers blow fluid onto hood (dealer says not adjustable). Seat cushions too short (I'm told the opt. sport seat are better). But! Will take the negatives because of the driving experience. Fix the little things and it's perfect.
Best FeaturesHandling, engine and overall performance. AWD. Fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesManual controls for climate. Override for auto-wipers. Nix the ice warning. Finish cargo area in black to reduce dirt. Change the mpg rating or improve the fuel econ.
