We have owned vans for many years but decided we wanted to size down. I loved the look & price of this car and the ride is good. Some of the interior design is a little "cheap" in quality, but with the good price of the car you have to expect that. The two things I do not like are the sun visors are too short, they could use an extension of some type & the way the hatch opens, it is hard to get it open you have to grab it in just the right place. We do take a number of weekend trips and have found the gas mileage to be getting better. We are getting about 30 miles to the gallon now. Too bad the gas tank could not be a little bigger, but like I said we owned vans before.
The overall look of the car and the front seats are very comfortable. It has great pick up speed and drives with ease.
Sun visors are too short when you put them to the side, and extension would help. The rear hatch door is very hard too open, you have to have your hand in just the right place or it will not open. Make that handle work a little better.
