This is an efficient and reliable car. My model is a manual and gets about 30mpg. I have never had any maintenance issues. I am not a conservative driver and it easily takes all of the abuse I give it. This is a car that is built to last, it's been 130,000 miles so far and hasnt needed much more than tires and an oil change every 5000 miles or so. It starts fine even in cold weather and is just an overall smooth running vehicle.
Cruise control is always a great feature. The truck lock is a good feature to have, just the extra security knowing that if my car is broken into i can still keep people out of the trunk. Folding seats are also a nice bonus. And for you music lovers out there, I put an MP3 player in, great upgrade!
A sunroof would be nice but its an older model, the new ones have it.
