-Excellent on gas (better than my bf's 03 civic hybrid)
-Standard Mp3 AUdio Aux
-Sits high which gives the illusion of more space & provides the driver w/false bravatto in traffic
-Rear-seats fold down for strange situations that require adequate storage
-WIde handling on turns
-Slippy-slides in rain
-Poor AC power (On the highest setting, its not comparable to a low setting on my 03 Saturn Ion)
-Low placement of cup holders, similar to a truck (I dropped a tea on the floor of the car, a wk after I owned it trying to get it into the cup-holder)
Conclusion: It can provide flat-bed space, low maintanance costs & poor AC power but your pockets will smile!
Purchased my car used at 138k. Was happy to see another XA at the same dealership, with 267k miles! That says "reliable" to me.
