ReviewUpscale features are nice, but great
mileage is meaningless given
purchase premium & $750 glow
may as well have gas engine & avoid
the extra noise, sluggish response,
& noxious exhaust. Electrical
problems: rear window defroster,
seat heater, errant break warning
light, air recirculation button. Glove
box broke at only 15 mo (but 30,000
mi, so no warranty help).
Annoyances: wide turning radius,
clunky shifter, low radio & climate
control placement, useless clothes
hanger hooks, small sun visors, low
side placement of the trunk light,
flimsy 12V receptacle in the trunk, &
lint-collecting seat fabric.
Best FeaturesHatchback utility; relative smooth, quiet ride (once you get underway); sound system; mileage; heated seats
Worst FeaturesRELIABILITY, better warranty, reasonable maintenance/repair costs, tighter turning radius, smoother shifting, better radio/cup holder/climate control layout, strong glove box, more storage compartments, useful trunk light placement, reinforced trunk 12V outlet.
