Got the car in late '04 with 45K (warranty was over in a month!) Reliable in most conditions and fun to drive. Poor city gas mileage(17MPG vs. +/-30 HWY). Frequent bulb failures.(LED in the hatch door was out from the beginning.) Service was expensive. (50K & 60K service fees are $320 & $595, and had some issues with dealership). Hope the car has better shock absorbers and cuts road noise(able to sense all the road conditions with my body).
Speed up in HWY passing, turn stability, seat belts, cruz control, auto lock, storage space
noise block, shock absorption, gas mileage, basic roof rail(not as an option)
