This is a fun car to drive with a lot of pluses, although there are also some negatives. The pluses include the industrial styling - if that's your thing, lots of power, storage galore, easy to clean interior, vehicle stability control, low tire pressure warning gauge, very quiet interior - even at 80+mph, interior tie down points everywhere, great door cup holders, and a great sounding stereo system. The negatives include interior plastic pieces that scratch very easily, chintzy chrome handles, semi-functional center cup holders, difficult rear entry/exit due to short wheelbase, base stereo does not read MP3 cds or have an auxiliary audio input.
More power than you will ever need to accelerate to freeway speeds. It is very smooth and quiet on the freeway. It is also very comfortable to sleep in as the rear seats fold flat.
Scratch-resistant interior plastic - especially in the cargo area. MP3 capability for base stereo.
