This is a decent little car, it gets
great gas mileage even after four
years. I commute about 2hrs each way,
2/3 of my drive is in traffic, heavy
traffic and I still get around 33-
34mpg. The other 1/3 of the time, I
am going well over 80mph. This car
does have a governer on it that kills
the power around 115mph which is
pretty fast for such a small car. The
first 80K miles, I have been doing the
tune-ups myself. Everything is very
easy to do on this car, I think any
girl could even do a full tune-up on
it. The only thing I really dislike
about the car is every 35k miles, I
need new brakes.
As others have mentioned, the cross
winds are hell in this thing. I also
do not find the seats very comfortable
either. An arm rest would be super as
well! Also do something about the 35k
mile brake jobs!
