So far this car has been pleasant to drive and is very versatile. Despite its sporty look, it's not a sports car so if your aim is power don't buy it. It sits higher up than regular cars and feels more like a small SUV but with better gas mileage and handling. The emergency brake doesn't catch all the time when I park but is hopefully an easy fix. I've had the car for 1 month and am undecided on whether I think the mileage is a good deal yet. Highway driving rated approx 360 miles/tank, mixed driving has been approx 300-325, city was less than 300. Hopefully the tank just needs more breaking in. Paint is durable - car was hit with hundreds of marble size hail and not a dent on it.
The forward flat folding front passenger seat; stereo has lots of features like the text key and 6 CD changer; The 2 cargo nets are super handy; interior has lots of storage compartments; great head room; shifter is angled on console and is surprisingly more comfy than the normal flat positions.
The storage compartment doors on console and under steering wheel feel a bit flimsy and could be better quality; foot pedals need to be spaced further apart. If you don't hit them right your foot can hit 2 at once or get caught under the pedal to the side of what you're pushing on.
