I've owned this car for four months and I'm trading it in next week.
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is annoying -- when you step on the gas, there's a delayed reaction.
It revs noisily during entire acceleration arc.
Most of my driving is city and MPG averages about 39.
Above 65 miles per hour, MPG drops to low 30s.
In Econ mode, AC stops with engine at stoplights.
Rear seatbelts get pinned behind seats after folding them up.
Cramped back seat leads to dirty upholstery when kids with dirty feet climb in.
Paint job is SOFT and easily scratched.
Body style is typical hybrid ugly, grille is inexplicably gray... would look much better matching the body.
AC is cold, iPod integration is nice, and MPG is GREAT on the highway as long as you're traveling under 60 - 65.
Ditch the CVT.
Paint the grille to match the car.
Reconfigure AC to be more friendly at stoplights.
