As gas keeps going through the roof, I keep smiling. With an average mpg of 40+ in mixed driving, I can't understand why people don't park their SUVs and get this to drive to work. What I am saving in gas is making the payment, not to mention the lower maintenance costs. The only negative is the cup holders, which is really a minor thing. The stereo is decent, the interior is roomy, and the seats are comfortable. I'm not a small guy, but this really doesnt feel like a small car.
Exterior design. Overall style. Its a very sharp looking car for the price. The engine and transmission have pop. Its not hard to keep up with traffic.
Cupholders need to be better placed. More play in the clutch, car stalls too easy when starting out. Ive driven manuals all my life, this one is a little too tight.
