I love this car! I'm getting 36 mpg city and 42 hwy so far. I just moved and was amazed at how much I could stuff into the hatchback. After reading the 'expert' reviews on this car, I was a little worried, but I went in for a test drive anyway. Handling is great, and it accelerates faster than I expected (manual transmission). It's nimble around turns and quick stops are no problem. The stereo is much better than I expected. I thought I'd miss power windows and locks, but it's really been no big deal. I'm pretty picky about cars, but I have no complaints.
Lots of compartments, including 3 gloveboxes. MP3 jack.
