Nice little car!

ReviewI've had this car for 5 months and 6,000 miles. The mileage keeps getting better as the engine gets broken in. Is now ~35 mpg (mostly highway) with the 2.0 and 4 speed auto, and still more than 30 with some city driving. I don't like the front seat and the console that cramps my right front leg (why do all these little cars have them if they're FWD?), but it's fun to drive with very good passing acceleration and the SMOOTHEST automatic transmission of any car I've ever been in. The oil filter is not really a problem since the dealer is very reasonable on the cost (~$10 over Wal-Mart) and does an inspection, too. Nice little car!
Best FeaturesAutomatic transmission. Passing acceleration. So far, quality of materials and workmanship seem to be very good.
Worst FeaturesWhy the console that crowds my right front leg? Why is the turn indicator in such an awkward position?
