I bought this car as an economical AWD car with great features. My only disappointment with it has been the gas poor mileage. Over two years the best mileage that I have gotten has been 24.5 mpg and the worst was 20 mpg and I am averaging around 22-23. Since I traded in my previous car in hopes of the 28 mpg on the sticker, this is a disappointment. It has great pickup for a 4-cylinder vehicle. The interior is very nice with comfortable seats. This car has only been in the shop for routine service (24,000 miles and counting). Note: some places (Walmart, etc.) will not do oil changes on this car.
I love the styling, heated seats, and huge cargo area (great for the garden center).
It should have MP3 support for the CD player, 16" wheels available on other models, it is nearly impossible to change your own air filter, the engine fan can be a bit noisy, and make Monster mats standard.
