He (yes, he's a he) scoots in and out of traffic, passing SUVs like they are standing still, leaps around clumps of snarled traffic by his quick ability to dart in and out of lanes. I named him grasshopper because the neat lines of the hatch remind me of a grasshopper's straight angled back legs.
mileage could be a tad better. 25 in town, 33 highway. Packs full and I have helped folks move in this little car. The depth of hatch door opening makes it easy to toss everything into it, including the kitchen sink if need be. I work in real estate and remodelling such, and can fit an eight foot 2x4 and a 12x8 piece of carpet stuck out the window. A great lil' big car. 122,000 mi and counting...

Two wheel bearings out, two bent wheels replaced, stabilizers replaced, brakes and calipers replaced, wheel fitting replaced, all fluids replaced, two batteries dead.
It's cost me $1,700 to repair a car worth $4,800. Screw that. It's not worth it. Go with a Honda.
It's only been 78,000 miles.

Too bad because everything else is original. Out of 6 cars I have owned this one is the first I ever had to replace a wheel bearing.
I guess I made up for that with this one.
I am looking for a new small car and since I don't want another car with wheel bearing problems I am not even going to look at the 2012 toyota yaris.
Hi everyone. I'm planning to buy a car in the next few weeks, have something in mind but need your opinion to clarify some doubts. I've been researching 2 cars: Chevy Aveo LS and Scion xA, both auto. ...
I also like this xA RS 1.0 car they're currently selling. In Absolutely Red it looks great with the trim sport profile tires and nice wheels. I have learned that when they sell all 1,550 of those red ...
