I had this vehicle for less than a year because of 3 things:
1) The mpg was poor! I do a combination of city and driving. I could only get 20 mpg out of it.
2) The brakes in hard braking situations required me to press the brake all the way to the floor. The reaction of the car was not one of confidence.
3) It was brought to my attention that the safety rating needed to be looked at further. There was something the passenger's safety being rated 2 out of 5 (safest) in an accident. I do not remember if there were qualifications on the angles of the crash or speed, etc.
All of the above led me to bail on the vehicle. The vehicle was spacious and was attractive.
The spaciousness and the styling of the car were my favorites.
The car is severely lacking in usability with the layout of the controls. Using the heater and the fan was poorly positioned. I had to take my eyes off of the road too long to be comfortable to make changes. On days where I needed the defroster but also needed to use the heater required frequent changing. It was frustrating.
