There's a lot to like about this car: cool styling, good fuel economy, comfortable, and handles well.
My only gripe, and it's a biggy, is the "automated transmission."
It is very disconcerting driving this car.
If test-driving this car, make it a point to do a left or right turn from a dead stop.
The car searches for a gear and lurches when it finds one.
My favorite features are the fuel economy and the convenience of a hatchback.
It's also quite attractive for a little wagon.
That darn transmission.
Make sure you take an extended test-drive.
Once you are on the highway, this thing is a dream.
Try driving the fiesty automatic transmission in city traffic.
Glad this is only a long-term rental.
