ReviewI realize I probably drive this less than most, being blessed with a 2.5 mile commute (each way), but it's gone ten years with no major work due to anything other than stupidity (mine, in barreling into a deep pot hole this year that required a new catalytic converter) or age (the impeller in the water pump broke in two this year, and I took the opportunity to have the timing chain replaced - all small engines need it sooner or later. I have lost no switches or other details, but would have preferred (1) a remote that actually opened the hatchback, rather than leaving it partly unlatched but closed on cold days, and (2) a driver's window that opened a bit faster. Good, safe car, fun to drive
Best FeaturesTurbo performance, suspension, handling, leather upholstery, sunroof, wet and snow road handling
Worst FeaturesBetter cup holder placement (though medium sized drinks fit fine), more reliable electrical connections for remote (e.g. gas filler door release), better hatchback release.
