I have had this car for over 1 year now, and am very satisfied.
It is comfortable, fun to drive, and gets excellent gas mileage (about 38 mpg highway).
I have had no problems with it.
Wouldn't mind power seats, but wouldn't expect that at this price range.
I also looked at the VW Golf, Mazda 3, and Impreza.
I thought this car handled better than all but the Golf, and in the Golf the seats were too narrow.
