I have had a few minor hiccups owning this car but overall it's been an enjoyable experience. I haven't had any major mechanical malfunctions since I purchased it. The car isn't the fastest on the market obviously but it's quick and gets good gas mileage. It has a unique look as well which gets attention even though it doesn't have the power to back it up.
I love how it turns heads and how it handles on the road.
I'd be willing to sacrifice some of the fuel efficiency for a bit more torque/horsepower. The variable valve timing doesn't kick in until you're close to redlining.
