I have 2000 mi. so far. All city miles so far. Mileage has steadily climbed starting at 28.5 to 31 mpg. There seems to be a gearing gap from 1st to 2nd gear. Trunk is roomy and back seats work great for my 7 and 11 yr olds. I think there should be more interior colors available. I wish there was a 6th gear for the highway. Not sure why the a/c turns on when you turn the temperature control know back all the way to cool.
Fun to drive. Good mileage. Looks great.
Horn is really weak. Add a 6th gear and spread out gear ratios across the spectrum. Radio reception could be better. Cigarette lighter will not charge phone unless motor is running. More interior colors.
