Great all around car. I bought it second hand and have put well over 10,000 miles on it. Good acceleration, good handling, plenty of room for four and a big trunk. I would definitely recommend the 24V motor - 50 extra HP, and huge difference in acceleration and speed over the regular 12V motor. No squeaks or rattles on the road. Fast enough to merge anywhere with no problem. I have gotten as high as 27 MPG on long trips with the cruise control set at 72-74. Overall, a great car for a reasonable price.
Rear spoiler is understated but adds appeal. Controls are simple. I really like the unusual center armrest / cup holder / storage. Big trunk. 24V motor makes a BIG difference in performance.
Back seat cupholders. For me, the armrest on the door could be better designed.
