ReviewSince April of this year, I have to downgrade my opinion of this car.
On a recent trip (1200 miles), I found the driver's seat to be so uncomfortable that my lower back and legs were wrecked for several days afterwards.
There is no lumbar adjustment which is a big negative.
Gas mileage on the trip was a mediocre 26.
My overall mpg for the life of the car is 21.3.
I drive fairly conservatively, smooth starts and braking.
This car has absolutely no power when the A/C is on which is a requirement here in the summer.
Transmission is rough.
The silver paint used on the interior is cheap and has flaked off.
The center console is absurd.
It's the bottomless pit.
Best FeaturesTurning radius, visibility.
Worst FeaturesSeats definitely need improvement. Gas mileage could be much better. Transmission should be completely overhauled. Center console should be redesigned, better division of space.
