Enjoyable to drive. Solid build and handling. Looks sexy. I bought this car last February and so far it's been a good choice when comparing to Nissan, Honda and Toyota. More bang for the buck. I'm planning to hang on to this vehicle for as long as possible since I fear future cars may look like upscale golf carts.
Clean engine layout. Refined, well appointed interior. Nice sound system. Easy entry and exit. Large glove box. Good power and acceleration for a 2L engine. Quiet engine when idling. Strong headlight illumination. Braking is smooth and powerful.
Limited rear windshield visibility. The base model could've included power windows and door locks as well as cruise control. Outside mirrors lack adjustment range. Air filter is hard to get to for replacement. Temporary disabling of seatbelt minder alarm doesn't work as described in manual.
