Review

Sure, the car's fun to drive and looks good. With the 170 hp engine, I have to constantly redline the engine to merge with traffic. When it finally gets up to speed, it's very responsive. Opening and closing the doors and you realize how cheaply made the body is. Like a coffee can on wheels. Driver seat must have been made for short legged people. Cheap radio has SAT button but you need to buy the extra satellite option. MPG drops because of the weak 4 cylinder 170 hp engine. My Dodge Caravan with a 6 cylinder had much better acceleration but had almost as good gas mileage because the engine didn't have to strain as much. Only good thing is that it's a company car that I'll have2 years

Favorite Features

Reverse sensor alarm helps when parking.

Suggested Improvements

Get tinted windows, the plain ones are so clear that on a sunny day you feel like you're baking in a fishbowl. Get the bigger engine. The 170 hp is a dog!
