The car has ample acceleration, response (not sports car) suspension and steering, and does actually get higher gas mileage than expected (the ones i've seen driven, all about 25- 27mpg). If you go in comparing to a 250hp suped up sports car, of course it's not going to satisfy you. If you want a car that can move well, get you from point a to point b, and have a very attractive exterior. this is a great buy.
Acceleration above the rest in it's price range/class. Handling second only to mazda 3's. Suprisingly roomy for a small car. I'm 6'3, and i can sit in the back with the front all the way to the back, and still stretch out my legs.
try to squeeze another inch into the height of the roofline. Bottom side of drivers dash seems a bit tight when you're in the car
