I drive 75mi round trip to work, so I needed a low cost car with good MPG.
So far so good.
I have been averaging 35-37 mpg 80% highway miles.
I wanted to stay under 20k out the door so it was between this and the Corolla.
The Corolla seemed really basic/bland and I would most certainly had buyer's remorse had I chosen to purchase the Toyota.
Performance is what you would expect from a 4-banger and the 6-speed transmission seems all over the place, but not too bad.
Styling, Bluetooth raido/phone, roominess, MPG, warranty, kids love it!
Transmission downshifting is not smooth, engine noise
