I did a lot of research before I purchase this car. It is my run around car, but this is one I will keep for a long time. I have had no problems at all with almost 20000 miles. I average about 26 miles in mixed driving and 33 miles on the highway. I added several things to it from the dealership (Sun Roof, Fog lights, Alloy wheels, Spolier, Bumper name on the back, Rear cargo deck, TRS exhause system, TRS Air Filter.) I have taken it on several long trips with no problems. I will let the seats down and carry things. This car beats The HHR, Mazda 3, and the Element, I test drove them all.
Everything, especially the turning Radius in this vehicle
