I drive a lot. This car is great for a person who does so. The few problems I have run into are... seeing the "blind" spot - the pillar is in the way for a head check; uphill power with the automatic tranny - have to put it into passing gear; space inside - always bumping elbows; boring - it's a car that is really nothing special; not enough places to stash your stuff like sunglasses etc. The upside... it's inexpensive to own. 30+ mpg, low cost to buy. It was just as expensive to insure as my 2001 4x4 Tacoma which I thought was odd. Overall, I wish I had bought something with more personality even if it had cost a few bucks more.
Gas mileage. Reliability.
Make this car more interesting! It needs an updated dash. Re-gear the automatic version to handle hills better.
