My daughter purchased this this vehicle 3 weeks ago -- base with 1.6L and 5spd.
I have driven it about 500 of the 2500 miles so far.
On a trip from Michigan to Pennsylvania, we achieved 36.2 mpg over 600 miles.
AC was on part of the time and there were two persons and back was loaded with cargo.
I drove the posted speed of 70 most of the way and 65 in PA.
Interior dash and controls are very nicely designed.
I much prefer it to my 2008 Scion xB.
Vehicle is very spacious, handles well, and is very practical.
Driving position is ideal for shorter person, but room for large driver as well.
Extensive safety features for a car in this price range.
Purchase was painless at dealer.
safety (air bags, anti lock brakes, traction control, etc. ) satellite radio, mpg, space, mp3, driving position, solid ride
Add cruise to the base.
All the other stuff that is added to the + is not really necessary.
