This was my first brand new car and I could not be happier. It's extremely fun to drive, gives a very solid ride, and has a million little things about it that I just love, like the entertainment from watching people try to open the hatch. Plus, the back seats are very spacious and easy to get into, even though it is a 2-door. And I love getting 30 mpg on average.
Convenient auxiliary input, air conditioned glove box, good acceleration, great brakes, heated seats, heated side mirrors
The oil filter should not be so hidden and difficult to get to, and a built in garage door opener would be nice.
