Got my car in April, 2008. The craziness of being chased down by tow truck drivers and 20 people standing around my car in the grocery store parking lot has gone away. But still have the occasional "how do you like your little car?" at the gas pump. Happy to say, almost a year later and I am still in love with my eco- friendly, economical import. In town, I get 33-42mpg depending on how I'm driving but even when gas was $4.00 a gallon, never spent a whole $20 to fill up. Big inside, very SMART outside.
Gas mileage, easy to keep clean, fun to drive, easy to park and it is adorable with reindeer antlers and nose during Christmas, also love the sunroof that is standard
Only thing I miss is cruise control for those longer trips across Texas
