Purchased for use as a well rounded, American made, economy car. I'm not a fan of GM, Toyota seemed too bland, Honda seats were too low. Other cars also seemed too high tech, which is fine, until the warranty is gone. Weight to power ratio is great, fun to drive, low maintenance. It's sporty, but certainly no sports car. However, if I wanted a hotrod, I would have purchased a hotrod. For what it is, the car is very well put together.
Sync system (I know this is a bit techy but if it ever quits I can live without it), gas mileage, ride quality
Better interior door panels. (They're OK, just could be made of higher quality material.)
