This car is so great! Sets your expectations on vehicles so high that its hard to find anything else as good, especially for the price! Does great on road trips. The gas usage.. amazing! The performance is pretty surprising for such a small car too! As for working on them, at times its a little cramped but defiantly more room than other compact cars that I've worked on and the parts are very reasonably priced when you consider how often you would need to replace them which I've found that once you replace a part your never need to do it again unless you keep it for another 10 years. All around I think this is the best car to have if you need something a little fun, great on gas and long trips, and really, really reliable!
It's very quiet and overall a great first car, wish it would have been my first car. :) The gas mileage is excellent. I hate to get rid of her, but I need something bigger. If you have a teenage daughter, (I'm a young lady, myself,) I would most definitely suggest this little companion.
The one thing that happened that was major was the battery died well i was having a delicious dinner which it is my fault because the battery was 5+ Years old fuel prices no matter how high they got the never eat you wallet cuz i got about 360-370 miles in full tank this car is great for a new driver not to fast not to slow(like a grandma)
