Review
Yes this car will get you attention but once this fad wears out, it will be nothing but a joke. After driving this car for 4k miles I have gotten mixed reviews, some laughs and some positive remarks. I average 31 MPG but when I drive on the highway at 70 MPH it drops to about 26 and it has zero power for passing. The transmission shifts very hard and abruptly from 1st to 2nd gear. The ride is rough but it is fun to drive a small car. The 2 year warranty is a joke. Every trip to the dealer costs $100 just to look at the car. As I said the car is fun to drive for a few weeks but exhausting to own and no worth buying if you need a reliable, fuel efficient car. A Honda Fit is a better value.
Favorite Features
Small size. Ok on gas but not great. Looks get attention. Easy to park. Fun to drive, sometimes but requires 110% attention and is exhausting after a long day at work.
Suggested Improvements
Needs more power, better fuel efficiency, better transmission, a bit more luggage space, less noise, better front end crash protection, better side crash protection, more compliant suspension, better warranty, better interior design, better pricing.
