Have had the car for 10 months, 6k miles, 0 problem so far. IMHO, it is the best compromise among gas mileage, cosmetics, reliability, and a sporty ride.
On highway, the 40mpg is spot on. The hatchback is super useful, once I was able to put FIVE dinning chairs in it. Very good lumbar support too.
The ride could be bumpy on crapy road because of its sporty suspension.
Not as quiet as toyota, could use better noise isolation
best noise isolation
better interior (similar to what CX-5 has would be great)
