While I love the quality of the materials used both inside and out, I never know what might happen with the car, reliability-wise. Within the first month of ownership, I had at least 2 trips to the dealership as a result of smelling a burning smell from the rear brakes after driving. Since then, have had both headlights go out (within 2 days of one another), followed by another one going out again. Also have had exhaust system issues (under warranty) and car has stalled while stopped at light, but this was an exhaust issue as well and the repair seems to have fixed the issue. Not sure I would buy another one.
Handling, interior space, rear seat leg room. Car feels huge inside (relative to actual size).
CD player is not as quick to skip tracks/function generally as Japanese models. Fix exhaust issues and better wiring for headlights.
