Got the car used, researched a long time for it. great values, have all safety features except side curtains. Easy to mod. Added sound deadening material to the hatch and doors, but the noise is just too much for me.
Peppy engine, hauls a lot (including a 3 seat sofa). Only needed Oil change as maintenance.
too much road noise, some squeaking. bumpers didn't take well to NYC street parking. Fuse to the lighter socket is the same as the radio. no aux out or ipod
