Its a nice fast city run-around car. Great on gas and is fun to drive. On the highway, it drives smooth at high speeds. Had it for 6 years now and haven't had any mechanical problems (except that squeak).
Excellent gas milage, very good front window field of view, a lot of head room (I'm 6'6"), large trunk compared to other cars of this size, easy and fun to drive. Has a nice "punch" in its maneuverability. Nice car for urban area, easy to park.
Not the greatest motion stability, rides bumpy. It developed the famous rear side squeak that mechanics can't seem to fix since they can't see any damage when they look for it.
