I bought this car based on the style and a friend's enthusiastic endorsement. It's a good riding car, but the engine runs much rougher than my Honda's ever did. I am kind of disappointed with all the plastic in the interior and with the low gas mileage. The cigarette lighter hasn't worked since I drove it off the lot. But...everyone loves the styling.

Add a fold down rear seat. Less plastic in the interior. Re-designed ashtray with a light. Bigger glove compartment.
I've had mine for 5 months with 5,000 miles on it. I like the car generally, for the reasons I purchased it - stand out design, performance. However, I think it's a pretty average GM car in most ways. It lacks the "luxury" amenities you would find in other cars of this price range. For example, you get the same generic key fob as a Chevy Astro with no standard alarm or window roll down feature. And no locking fuel door? Are you kidding me? And while the performance is good, it's nothing to write home about. Assembly is not that good either. Rear bumper cover feels loose, and the passenger doors have to be slammed to be shut properly. While these aren't critical issues, this car can improve.
Overall performance; handling; small turning radius; unique styling; navigation system
I have not gotten the performance or gas milage that I understood that I would get. I don't know what is wrong with my car but it is not the same car that is discribed in these reviews. It just does not measure up to other cars that I have owned.
I don't know how to answer this as others who owners of this car seem to have gotten a much better car than I have. I traded in a vehicle that was much better than this one and I think that I paid way too much for this car as it does not perform up the the standard that I expected.
