I bought this car after deciding to downsize from my Dodge Caravan, but I still needed room for my 3 dogs. This car holds the dogs, and all my stuff, and I still love driving it after 4 years. I had to replace the original tires after 33,000 miles but other than that have had to do nothing but regular oil changes and recommended service. I hope to keep and drive it for many years to come.
I love the fold-down rear seats, the moon roof, the in-dash 6-CD player. Plenty of room to carry stuff around.
Like others I get about 21-22 mpg around town, 27-28 mpg on the highway. This is worse than my 1996 Dodge Caravan. I'd hoped for better in a smaller 4 cyl. car. I wish there was more leg room for front passenger. It can be painful for long rides. Better rear visibility too when parallel parking.
