I've owned this car for only a few weeks now, but i'm absolutely in love with it. I'm not a "car person" by any stretch of the imagination. My previous car was a '95 Honda Accord and after 240,000 miles, I needed a replacement. I looked exclusively at Honda and Toyota for a new, inexpensive alternative, and stuck with Honda because it was simply a better value and a prettier car.
Built-in-dash MP3 cd player (I live in a somewhat high crime area). "Zippiness". Comfortable seats. Instrument panel. Feel of the stick. Interior and exterior styling. Just a great little car.
Center armrest slides forward, which is great, but it slides back too easily (when leaned on). Driver's side rear blind spot is a little bigger than i'm used to in a Honda. 1st gear. As I'm not a "car guy" I can't explain it, but it's hard to get into 1st smoothly, and it feels altogether useless.
