First off, the car has had only two problems in my 8 years of ownership. I had to replace the clutch slave cylinder (very cheap and quick fix - right in front of the engine) and the driver's side window likes to jump the track if you wind it up when wet (Easy fix, but use the bullet-proof and freezing cold A/C). Other than those things, I get about 33 MPG with my foot to the floor when I get the opportunity (Mixed driving) and there is a lot of cargo room with rear seats folded. If you get the opportunity to get a good example of this hatchback, you will not be sorry!
Toss-ability of the car. This car handles very well stock and with aftermarket additions, it can be even better. High MPG and near perfect reliability!!!
The driver's seat is not that comfortable if driving for more than an hour or so straight. More performance, but you did not really buy it for the performance (Something you can do in the aftermarket).
