ReviewI purchased the '2012' model back in the summer of 2011 - this has led to some confusions in reviews. This is really a great car - for its design intentions -- I purchased it due to my 120 mile per day commute - all highway - it has been reliable, and the gas mileage claims have been very accurate. I love the look of the car, its handling and it's fairly peppy for a small car. My major gripes - the car is extremely light and does not do well in any cross winds - it becomes jittery. The front and rear body work is on the cheap side - all light polymers... In snow it is terrible - I just purchased a set of snow tires and this fixed the problem
Best FeaturesGas Mileage, Handling, Exterior Looks and general fit and finish.
Worst FeaturesFront and rear end need to be stronger - very easy to put a major dent in the back or front of the vehicle - you can press it firmly with your hand and it will leave a ripple? In VERY hot weather - I have experienced some 'warning light' oddities - no just the obvious tire pressure indicator - but other lights that really should not be impacted by a hot day (over 100F).
