The basic short summary is that it's a very good overall car except it is in need of some extra power bad. It's had a couple of electrical problems, but is over all a very solid car. Comfy, great sound system. 27 mpg on the highway too.
Car is very dependable. Gas mileage is great. Road noise could be a little less.Performance is great for a small car.Upkeep is very cheap.Only had to problems both was fixed under warranty.Both was factory defects.
I've been totally happy with this car. It's had no problems. Has started every morning. Gets reasonable gas mileage for commuting. Sorry the company went out of biz cause they were on their way to producing a great little car. (And my husband has more head room in this vehicle than in his 4-runner!)
I bought this car as a demo from the dealer with 4500 miles on it. I have had 2 recalls and had no issues getting them fixed in a timely manner. I have had to replace the cargo cover due to the spring failing, but was covered under warranty and had the parts within 10 days. This car is great on gas and I did some research and the size is very close to that of a VW Passat, and if I went MSRP for MSRP it was 15K less than the VW. I managed to purchase the vehicle for $6495 with a sticker of 17K and some change. Great car for the price.
