After 3 years and over 70,000 miles I remain delighted. It has met all of my expectations and more. Other than a windshield replacement due to its vertical orientation and replacement of the original tires at 70,000 miles, I have only changed the oil/filter and had the major service done. Consistently get 24-25 MPG; find it to be comfortable but a somewhat bumpy ride on longer trips; and love the functionality for hauling gear and bulky items. Great value for the price and low cost of operation.
Utility, comfort, initial price and low cost of operation.
Less vertical windshield to reduce stone chips. Improved sound-proofing.
