decent all around car

This car is great. The main problem with this car is the tires if you ever have a flat or have to get new ones. The tire sizes are almost impossible to find. I had a flat tire and had to wait almost 3 days to get a new one because no one stocked it. Definitely a bad thing for a daily driver. This car also does not come with a spare tire. It comes with a tire repair kit which does nothing for an unrepairable tire. Then comes the gas mileage. I only drive this car around town mostly and am lucky to average 16 in town and 22 on the highway. I still only have about 3000 miles on it so hopefully those numbers will improve. The rear seat entry is pitiful for this cars size.
I love the power. Despite my gripes this car is great for the money. I love how this car handles in the rain. I love the instrumentation. This is my first car with XM radio, which I love.
Tight rear seat; Odd tire sizes; Needs a 6 speed automatic with sport mode, which would help mileage a bit; My car rattles a little to much; Needs a donut tire
