Review

Not sure why Edmunds rates this car so low, could it be that that simply did not give something so unique and worthwile a chance? The amazing gas mileage aside, this is a VERY reliable and fun car to drive. My wife and I bought it brand new and have put over 75,000 miles on this vehicle and have had to do only minor repairs. Windshield wipers, oil changes and tires come to mind. This is a great car for us, however it may not be for everyone. You cannot have a lead foot or be an overly large human being with this car. It's small and it's not going to do any burn-outs, but it just might make individuals think about their actual driving needs and not some imaginary status symbol. SUVs suck!

Favorite Features

VERY reliable, fun to drive, gas mileage second to none. Easy to keep clean.

Suggested Improvements

The stereo system needs to be upgraded. This will certainly make up for any added road noise. It's VERY hard to get decent tires for this model, odd sized tires. The brakes and the ABS system simply don't work as well as they should.
