EPA sticker says 42 mpg open road. I get a good deal more. Long trips over 50 mpg. Seems the reason to buy the car. Initial impression is very high but fades quickly once you notice how ill fitting and how poorly mounted all the rubber seals and plastic shields fit. Like a child's toy. Things you see the first time you hand wash it and not before. A good amount of water drains from the doors after a wash. 3 or 4 more times normal. Water even enters and exits around the mirror mounts at garden hose pressures. That's going to be a rust issue quickly. Engine compartment however seems quite water tight as does the trunk. The paint is nicely sprayed but is DEAD soft and easily chips and scratches with an impact of a medium sized bug. We don't have 2K clears and ovens in Mexico? I have more chips and mars in this car in a month than my last five cars combine. "Party" metallic and dark colors does this cheap materials finishing no favors. Pure eye candy with no substance. There is so little clear on this car Perfect-it II is iffy. Add in the special "only tire" available to suit the computers roll out and "J" flange alloy wheels which even the factory seems not to care about considering the inboard flange mounted wheel weights. Really, on a painted wheel? Why the tape weight in the visible area ONLY then? Corrosion is corrosion no matter which side of the wheel it's on. At least the tires are not priced silly...if you can find one. The nose is a love it or hate thing. I like it. As chrome is no longer really chrome I wish "They" would just monotone color trim and quite trying to pitch a dead horse. Real chrome or find another finish folks. Pealing chrome looks worse that pitting. It lacks luster, depth and has zero protection. Not that it matters over PLASTIC. At 6'' and 195 lbs. I challenge the interior space of compact cars and this one more than fits my frame. Even with the seat adjustment set to it highest level I have plenty of headroom, shoulder and leg room. The box around your knees could be more ample (Narrow the console or move the vertical line forward) but the seat will have you taking a break long before your knees feel cramped. Unpadded brick. Tilt/telo wheel is a nice touch and has good range. I don't ride in the back but I stuffed a 285 lb. salesman back there. I bought this car after my third new Honda Civic and noting the hideous finishes and panel fits on the new 2016 Civics. Ops!!! Ergonomics are overall very good and not too busy. Controls well placed and make sense. I thought Sport mode would quicken the shift. Nope, just lops off two gears and uselessly raises the sift point a few hundred rpm. Sounds faster, isn't. I prefer the manual shift but would like paddles so my hands stay where my hands should be. Day time glare renders most instruments useless. What's that about? Ride is to lauded. For it's weight and wheelbase you would swear you were in a car with 10" more reach and a thousand pounds more weight. Not plush mind you by not econobox buck board harsh either. Out rides cars a full segment higher. Good handling. Steering is neutral to slightly tight and very pedal responsive to correction. Zoom-zoom. Very predictable turn in on very so-so tires and silly narrow rims. I'd like to comment on the brakes but the car is not brake limited. It's tire limited on the haul down. Brakes stop tires. Tires stop cars. Just say'n Toyota. The cruise control is NICE mated to this the Skyactiv 6 speed auto box with grade logic control that actually works and works GREAT. Now if the motor had enough dynamic compression to actually brake the car on a 5-7% grade. For a motor of a pint and a half I'm impressed even of the community at large is not. Over a pound foot torque per cubic inch displacement is impressive normally aspirated. The AC will tax it and no matter how fast this car WILL go this isn't a 70 mph all day long car and expect any motor life from it. Yep a minus for every plus and if I were buy again....I'd buy a one year old Buick Verano for the same money and have twice the car at 60% the fuel economy and three times the comfort. Thing is. I bought it as a "Econo run about" to limit the miles on my LaCrosse and keep it indoors during the salty season. Sacrificial lamb of sorts that would be fun to drive. Oh and it is.
