I am really liking my car. I find excuses to drive it now even though gas is still expensive. Very quiet inside, drives nice, good looking and gets pretty high gas mileage. With a little over 1,000 miles on the motor I'm pulling 32 to 35 in town and 41 to 47 highway trips. These numbers are better then the publicized stats for the 45K to 60K hybrids. Leg room in the back for adults is missing but for me I can over look this detail for now.
Smoothness, quiet inside when running down the road, peppy engine, the manual shift auto trans, stability control/ABS brakes
Seat material for the fabric used in the cloth seats, not a big fan as they are kind of a mesh material. Hairs, dog hair and other small debris gets caught in the weave.
