I drive this car 70 miles round trip three times a week commuting to work. She has also taken me and one or two passengers on trips of up to 1000 miles a time or two. I average 36 MPG, but occasionally get over 40. There is nothing to dislike about "Jolene" She gets all scheduled maintenance and I have had absolutely no problems with her. She's on the original battery and still starts right up unless I forget the headlights. Even then a jump and 5 minutes run time is enough to "rejuice" her. She's small, so changing a flat is almost easy. Her pick up is sufficient and she has absolutely NO problems holding her own on the highway with the big boys. She does not act like a little car.
Fuel economy and reliability. Cargo flexibility. Surprisingly non-painful on long trips. Great sound.
Cruise control (Jolene sometimes gets into her head that the speed limit is more of a recommendation.) Road noise can be annoying at warp speed.
