We bought this little car used for our son who goes to college 45 miles from home (90 miles daily in our van was killing us on gas!). It gets between 32 and 38 mpg, so we are very happy with it. It is compact enough to park anywhere (great advantage on a college campus), it is cute enough that our son is not embarassed to drive it, and it has enough safety features to please us as parents (dual airbags!). We changed the factory cassette player/stereo for a CD changer stereo and our son is very happy. I comment on how cute the car is every time he pulls out of the driveway! We're very happy with our purchase. The dealer gave us top dollar for our van and we got a great little car in return.
Gas mileage! 4-door style makes easier for passengers to get in and out of back. HUGE trunk for a small car.
Doesn't pull hills very well, but the poor little thing tries really hard. AC seems to be kind of flaky, but does blow cold air.
