Never Regretted Buying This — Fun, easy car to drive. It demands looks from others for two reasons: half the population thinks it's truly ugly, the other half thinks it's cool. As a business car with logos applied, it gets attention. That's what I bought if for. No repairs to date (2006 model). Very, very reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage, style, reliability, roomy interior (very roomy)

Cons: Acceleration, understeer, minimal cargo capacity/trunk

Fun, Great " To N From Shopping" Car, Loads Of Room. —

It isnt on par with luxury mini vans, and it isnt trying to be. This is the "Cool xB model, later ones, when style changed, look like squashed mini vans. It drives and turns tightly, nimble, and has tons of cargo space. I fit 5 bales of hay in the back, and had room for one more, if he had it to sell. MP3 aux input is handy, right between front seats. Seats themselves, other than lack of arm rest, are decent. Not sure I want a 5 hour ride in this, but all around Atlanta, short to modest trips, I like it. The A/C works well, could stand a little better vents or more of them, as it does have a lot of space to cool. Not a lot of extra features, but it is still decently appointed for the price. The reliability of these cars is extraordinary. Solid front disc brakes do a good job, drum brakes in rear, well, this car doesnt weigh all that much, so you dont really notice any difference. Car almost parks itself, gets into tight spaces, and is a fun out in the boonies ( twisty backroads for you city folk :-). Overall... it will haul 4 people, as long people in back arent 6 footers. Back seats fold down to give you large enough space to haul at least 5 square bales of hay ( i probably could of fit 6 ). I wouldnt drive this across country as seats are OK, but not long hours ok. Road noise is nominal, again, in this price range, its relative. I have owned a nice Chrysler Town and Country minivan, THIS isnt that, and isnt trying to be. Need a reliable car for college student with tons of space ? or kid moving out of the house, or YOU just want either a second car for shopping, or, you are on a budget, have a family of 4, and need space for groceries, this will still work. We have put over 30k on this car. It is now up for standard 95k service- timing chain, front end alignment ( just needs one not a 95k service ) tranny filter/fluid, tune up- about $350 total.. that is not that much actually. I spent over $750 on a timing belt on my Olds Cutlass back in 2001.. I would absolutely recommend this as a an extra car, kids first time car, or just in need of an " all around do almost everything but not break our budget " car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tight turn radius, incredible capacity, great looks, handles nicely, good MPG. Nice accessories, MP3 plug in, very kewl radio with transitional colors.

Cons: I really dont like not having an arm rest on the front seats, between the 2 front seats. You have no place to rest an arm on the passengers side. Power is, well, minimal. Its a 1.8L engine, and flooring it brings a lot of squirrels to life, but not many horses.
