This is the very first brand new vehilce purchase I have ever made. I am quite disappointed. The exterior paint is "cheap & sensitive" (scratches down to the metal extremely easily, I have had to pay for protectant because of bird droppings marking it). The interior "plastic" (dash, doors)scratch extremely easily, and the upholstery snags like mad as well. The little windows on the front sides create blind spots. The window sticker when I bought it said avg mpg 30 highway and I have not ever gotten above 25-26mpg. Small gas tank. Cruise control is not standard neither are arm rests. Not terribly comfortable. Hard to handle in strong winds. Back seat not much leg room. Not "family" car
Dash design is okay. Accessable controls. Car has a good sporty look. Trunk space is pretty good.
Better gas mileage, bigger tank. Better quality paint. Better quality upholstery. Plastic that does not scratch so easily. Cruise control and arm rest standard. Folding back seats. More interior leg room. A way to have items on passenger seat without having to buckle them in b/c of airbag alarm.
