I have been hit by 13 deer while driving this car. It has had its front bumper. hood and either fender replaced atleast 8-9 times. A racoon took out the front bumper once...The body could be of better material. The rest inside and out is original. After all this I have not been hurt and it is still running. 200,000 miles and all I have done is changed the oil regularly, the occasional alignment, new tires and just had the radiator flushed. Drove it 1800 miles to see family and am driving it back those 1800 miles. I expect to get another 100,000 miles.
This car has lots of room.
The hatch is roomy like a small pick up. Quiet and rides smooth. Handles great. The interior is easy to clean.
After 200,000 miles still gets over 30 mpg
The bumpers could be stronger or held on with stronger support than plastic clips.
Thats all. Great little car.
