Purchased in March of 2005, car has been reliable and fun to drive 80 miles each day for work. Gas mileage has been pretty good although the AC does zap mileage more than any other car I've had. Seats are comfortable for short and long drives. Those reviewers who state otherwise haven't adjusted the seats correctly. Back seat leg room is very good for the size of the car.
Brakes a little soft. Get rid of the DRL in newer models. Gas light comes on with 4 gallons left. Redesign trunk hinges so they don't protrude into the trunk. Put a real sized spare tire in the vehicle. Make foglights a standard feature.
