I purchased this car in 2/08 in Tempe AZ and save about $3K instead of buying it in ABQ, NM. I'm getting about 38.5 to 41 MPG a week. Car is great on gas and has low engine noise. AC works great and came with most of the options of the LE (i.e., cruise control, tire pressure sensor, power locks and Windows variable speed windshield wipers etc). Good suspension and no interior problems. Seats fold down and tons of trunk space. It been a good little car.
Gas mileage. Trunk space. 5K engine oil changes.
Car does needs a better horn and I would like to see a better front seat with more comfort. More DC outlets - maybe one in the trunk. 2009 comes with less gas performance than the 2008 but has a bigger engine and is a better looking ride.
