If you are looking for a high mileage vehicle, THIS IS IT. When the price of gas is over $3.00 a gallon and you consider how many times you have to have more than a two place car, you will see the value. The manual version is light and easy to move through the gates, and the extra control of the torque band of the engine is invaluable for extra high mileage. Expect 65 to 70 mpg at 70 mph. My best run...82.2 mpg!! (at 55)
Compact, able to park anywhere. Aerodynamic design makes car almost impervious to the side loading of large vehicles, like 18 wheelers.
Needs a center console!! The comfort of a hanging right arm is not terrible, but not great either.
