I enjoy this car except for 3 problems: (1) The two wheel drive is the worst and most helpless front wheel drive car I have ever driven in the snow. There is too much power to drive wheels causing wheel to spin easily. (2)I started out averaging about 22 mpg in the city and 25-27 mpg on the highway. It now has taken a turn down word to 18 city and 21-23 Hwy (according to vehicle display). This is not what was promised. (3) The vehicle trade in value towards a new car was insultingly low - $13,800.
The car has plenty of power and drives great the quality seems like a Volvo- safety wise.
Rear seats are OK for kids but tight for adults for any extended drives. I don't know how you would do it with the transmission it has but improve front wheel drive traction in ice and snow once again it's terrible.
