Ok, first off, this is a car. It's a cheap car. It's not going to be perfect. Most cars aren't, especially ones this cheap. Now, for the price, I feel that it's great! I've loved these cars since they came out, and wanted one since. Beings that I was only 16 at the time, I couldn't afford one. Anyways, the only issues I've had were the front end clunking (sway bar links, struts, and steering column replaced under warranty to fix it) and the sunroof and headliner rattle quite a bit. Crank the radio (on the Pioneer that I have and love!) and you wont notice it! Even took the car on a road trip to Florida from Michigan this spring, and it was fantastic with 3 people and luggage all over
Style, color (orange), all the room, GREAT gas mileage! Sunroof is fun to have! The 2.2 isn't fast, but it does have some "oomph" to it when need be.
Better brakes. Mine have warped the rotors twice, and this is common. Also better front end parts so they don't clunk, and better interior components that don't rattle so much, and maybe less cheap plastic? But again, what do you expect for the price? Seats that wont stain would be nice...
