Actual mileage in the first three tanks is 31-36 mpg under less than ideal driving conditions. Comfortable to drive, controls are easy to use. It was easy to adjust to the center mounted instruments. Have not yet needed to fold down the rear seats for more cargo space on short trips, city errands and shopping. Better visibility than in the Matrix or Scion Xa.
The computer reminders are polite and helpful. 7 hours plus of high quality mp3 on a CD (with convenience package)- no special formatting needed. No power steering noise at all from the electric assist system.
Acceleration at low speeds is sometimes uneven. Better speedometer markings would be helpful. The driver's side glovebox is nice, but sometimes awkward to reach.
