Good gas mileage. Sits higher than other cars but if you come from an SUV then you'll like it. Heated side mirrors are great for the ice/snow. Plenty of room inside. Visibility is ok, better than other small cars. Engine is good enough even though its a base model. I am small enough that it turns the airbag off when I get in, so that is a nice safety feature. Very little noise and vibration.
Heated side mirrors, plenty of space. already used the tpms (had a slow leak in tire) I added on a remote start. Hopefully it lives up to its reputation for reliability.
Please add the option for a compass, its standard on some other cars. In direct sunlight (usually at sunset), it is harder to read the gauges.
