Okay,it's a fun car to drive, gets you lots of questions/stares,so if you want attention great,if not move on. Best mileage about 29mpg, not bad/but not great. Brakes are poor at best, and I slide all over in the winter (illinois) and good luck getting snow tires,almost no one has them!!! and when you do find them,a single new tire can run you $150, yikes! Paint is weak/scratches easily. Must say lift back is great, can really get a ton of stuff in w/seats folded flat (got a recliner in there)but overall, cars just okay! No major mechanical issues, but road noise,lots of rattles, brakes and traction lacking! Oh,and sooooo not a green little car, same emissions as HUMMER, wish i'd known.
Radio controls, ipod interface, cruise standard. Good ground clearance,feels like you're higher up than most small cars. Affordable, but "pure pricing" is such a rip-off! You should always be able to deal, if nothing else ask em to throw in the $150 floor mats.
Saw the 2010's have standard traction control, great! Now how about better emissions,27-30 vs yaris/fit 12 and hummer 27-30(check the specs on edmunds)! thought a little car w/decent mpg would be environmentally friendly, not so much. Also seats could be more comfortable, pretty stiff. Road noise.
