Car had 33,000 miles when purchased and exterior looked brand new. Acceleration is slow but once you get going car is fast and fun to drive. A little mushy on turns faster than moderate speed. First 3 years required only regular maintenance. In the last three, replaced two batteries and needed service on the Trac system. Car is good on snow covered roads.
Love this little car because you're surrounded in comfort. And, it has many little luxuries, heated seats, moon roof, smooth ride. Seats four average height people comfortably. Good sized trunk and console storage.
Hope in later models they fixed the battery problem. Very irritating and inconvenient to find the battery near dead if the car sits for 2 or 3 days.
