My only complaint is that the brakes don't have the stopping ability that most cars have; they feel spongy. Otherwise I like everything else about the car.
The v-tech engine has lots of power and it's suprising to get good gas mileage, 21 city 26 highway.
The brakes definitely need improvement You really have to press down hard to make a sudden stop. Car isn't like the imports, it's a little sloppy, but it's a car that you can put high mileage on with little or no major breakdowns. Great car for the money!
