This was my 1st new car bought in 2007, and it hasn't let me down in the 6 years I've driven it.
It's a basic economy car, so I went in not expecting leather heated seats, GPS, and backup cameras.
Plus, it gets good gas mileage, so there is much less money to spend on fuel compare to many vehicles on the road today.
It's not hybrid, so no $10K battery replacement costs nor electronics needed to manage the dual electric/gas powertrain system.
The only downsides I can report are lack of standard tachometer and arm rest.
I bought an aftermarket arm rest online, and that helped on long trips.
Fuel economy, reliability
Standard tachometer and cruise control.
Otherwise, have no complaints.
Not sure if this is possible, but a sunroof might be cool for high end models.
It's not a luxury vehicle and doesn't need leather or heated seats/GPS/etc...
