After 3 months and 2000 miles driving mine, I think they fixed the transmission issues on the Auto,Manual with some kind of recall/patch. Mine is smooth, quiet, only issue is very slight delays backing out and starting from stop, but not so bad to be annoying. Have yet to have a problem with the car. Started off getting about 34 MPG but now closer to 30. Think it's my mix of driving, summer gas, and non-stop a/c on now.
Exterior looks, hatchback convenience, reliability, pretty quiet for a small car with a small 4 cyl. Fun to drive.
I've not played a video game since Pong, so as an old guy the interior controls are hard to understand. Owner's manual may as well be written in Chinese or Spanish, which given the typos in it, it might have been. Would like things simpler, but then I'm not the demographic the car is positioned to.
