ReviewI've been really pleased with this car. I wanted econo, but my wife wanted all the bells and whistles, so we got all the features available and it is a very nice. Comfortable, fast enough (not a rocket ship, but pulls hills effortlessly), and nice things like heated seats and good sound system. I put 17" wheels on, and have an automatic, and get about 42 mpg. I love that. Have two small kids and with car seats it is pretty tight in back, but managable. Fate is dropping an '02 Mercedes in my lap, so I am selling, but otherwise I would consider this a great long term car.
Best FeaturesMileage, excellent interior style and finish, heated seats, monsoon sound, sharp styling, comfortable highway cruising, never dips a mph off the cruise control setting when I come to hills, and on hill passes all the gas cars. Surprisingly large trunk.
Worst FeaturesTwo little rattles I could live without (but aren't so annoying that I am willing to risk the damage the dealer might cause trying to fix them) More rear seat room.
