If you're looking for a car that is great on gas mileage but you don't need a ton of cargo room, this is the vehicle for you! Even with only 3 cylinders, this little buggy has a good amount of get-up-and-go. Driving in the snow is trickier; you just have to take it easy and give yourself more time. Some say it's uncomfortable, but I don't think it's that bad - and I spend about 75-80 minutes driving one way. Repairs don't cost any more than other cars, despite the hybrid technology.
-Gas mileage, of course! I get 45-50mpg. -Very eye-catching. Everyone thinks it's adorable! -Cabin design is comfy and intuitively organized. -Auto Stop is fun!
-Cruise control would be nice. -the 2003 model doesn't have an in-dash cd player, so I had to get an aftermarket one. -optional 4wd or some other traction control that you can turn on/off would be cool.
