This is a great little car. Good performance and great looks, much better than the Matrix. Fuel economy is considerably better than EPA rating. I have only one problem with the car since new-a cracked battery case- an it was fixed under warranty. 46000 miles and no other problems. Plenty of room and comfortable.
Six-speed manual and plenty of storage space. Excellent quality, performance, and looks.
Get rid of the reverse alarm after the car is moving. By then I think I know I'm in reverse. Also, the hidden power point only works when the vehicle is running. I don't need a hidden one when I'm in the car. It would be nice to be able to charge a cell phone when I'm out of the car.
