Bought this car three years ago and had no problems whatsoever with the car. I only go to the dealer every 5,000 miles for the usual maintenance stuff, very reliable compact car. Averages 29-31 mpg of city driving usually around 30-32 if I don't use my AC a lot. Excellent resale value, bought this car for $15,000 and if I trade it in, it is still $12,000 just $2,000 depreciation for 3 years - not bad! Try that on other vehicles and you will really be disappointed. Runs fast, got it more than 110 mph with 5 people on the car.
The looks, Gasoline mileage, foldable back seat for added cargo, very good top speed for a compact car.
Add some torque, improve the paint job. Add diesel engine for improve gasoline mileage just what they are doing over there in UK. Seat should be raised a little bit more for road visibility.
