After 10 months and 9500 miles, all is excellent...upper 40s on the hwy, 29-30 in horrible suburban driving conditions where I live (a lot of stop and start). Absolutely no problems. I think it's a great, fun car for the money. A bit slow on the start, but it picks up speed quickly. I'm sold on diesel. The only thing I don't like is the odometer display.
My wife claims she doesn't care about cars but I can tell she loves it.
Diesel engine and mileage. Handling ok.
Can't see the running mileage on the car other than when it stops or starts. The display shows all kinds of info (e.g. mpg) but not the mileage. Also, changing the time on the clock is difficult.
