I've run 70,000+ miles and finally needed my first repair - replacing the cheap front brakes. With rarely required routine maintenance (including oil changes every 10K or so with Mobil 1), and 27-30 MPG, you couldn't ask for a more reliable lower cost to maintain car. I got all the options except a sunroof (too tall) that makes it a pleasure to drive. Added antiroll bars that really tightened up highway handling.
Fuel economy, reliability, looks, can carry huge loads of cargo but can park in compact car parking spots.
Window switch location, cheap interior plastics, more sound deadening materials.
