I bought this car in November of 2008, it was the cheapest car I could find and I am surprisingly pleased with it. The drive is smooth and unexciting, the radio is decent enough, the controls are laid out nicely the front seat are comfortable enough to be in for a few hours at a time and it's a compact car that has enough power to pass semi's on the highway.
High way gas mileage is great, I drove 265 miles on 7 gallons of gas. The front seats are great for tall adults. The trunk has folding supports so you can take full advantage of the ample trunk room.
The back seats are tiny, great for kids less you have to sit sideways on the seat due to lack of leg room. Also, the back seats don't flip down from the inside of the car, you have to go through the trunk.
