After 3 years and 18000 mostly city miles, the car is virtually unchanged from the day it was new. No rattles, no fading, no visible wear. The car has tight handling, has the feel and build quality of a luxury car, and has an excellent 5 speed transmission. The car has been absolutely problem free - just gas and regular oil changes. I would be another one just like it without hesitation and recommend it to others.
Sunroof, bonus stereo, fun 5-speed transmission, thickly padded seats, soft interior textures, useful storage, huge trunk, great gas mileage, sharp looks, panzer-like build quality.
I wish the 2006 model had an MP3 connection like the 2007 and later models do.
