We bought a used one of these for about $7500. It looked brand new and handled fine, but then the problems started. We had to replace the brakes twice, and the check engine and airbag lights both stayed on. It ended up costing us about $2000 in repairs and is crap for mileage. We calculated it at about 13.9 mpg doing mostly city driving. The handling feels smooth, but the turn radius is pretty cruddy considering its size. We would've been better off buying a Corolla.
Interior is really roomy and comfortable, car won't let you lock the doors while the key's in the ignition, and the brakes are very responsive.
Move the power window controls. Why the hell are they only on the console? Also, the high beams switch is in a god-awful place, connected to your signal lights. You wouldn't believe how many times I've turned them on while trying to signal.
