I love this car. I didn't even do maintenance for 2 years because I didn't know what to do! Now I get regular filter changes/tires/oil/and it needed some transmission fluid when I noticed it made a weird squeaking noise. Read the user manual would be my advice, to avoid costly mechanical charges. DO change air filters a lot (every 3 oil changes), it improves the fuel economy. I only had to change the battery one time, and I've had to jump start it many (when it was the old battery) because I kept leaving the lights on. The factory battery lasted 5 years which is really quite something!.
The cruise control. Saves a lot of money on gas. I love the way it can turn so nice and tight around narrow streets when I do a u-turn!
It isn't very cozy on long trips. My rear end falls asleep and my legs get stiff and icky. Also the cabin is noisy.
