I've owned 10 cars and this car keeps delivering me smiles. I've gotten 35 mpg on the way to la. I consistently get 27 mpg. This car meets all my needs and more. I bought this car used with 40k miles and it has 55k miles on it now. Carfax report says car has had transmission work done. Tranny sometimes stays in first if car is cold then shifts roughly. This is a rare occurrence.
mpg gauge, auto sensing wipers, great stereo sound, great handling, eats up bumps, very safe. spectacular car. If you smoke when it rains, the wipers push rain into the car.
no dipstick, no aux jack to plug in my ipod/iphone. trunk is kind of small. rear legroom is poor.
