It Is A Basic Car Has Everything You Need But Not Everything You Would Want — I like this car simply because its a compact hatch back and it is very easy to drive and you don't have too many blind spots and maintenance is very cheap and it gets almost 30mpg so theres some of the highlight of that.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a very easy car to drive
very fuel efficient
A car that will get you from point A to B easily and enjoyable car to drive

Cons: doesn't have a lot of power acceleration is weak sometimes you have to force it to go faster.
made out of plastic cheap material on the inside
very basic and  has no AUX input

Useful — This is outiftted to tow behind my RV, and it does a good job in that capacity. It is stick shift, which is a pain in city traffic. Good power, good braking, good visabilitiy. It's a nice little car, and very useful to tow along.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Hatchback style and fold down rear seats alllow carrying "stuff."

Cons: Ordinary looking, rattles in windows, doors

Great Little Car — Terrific gas mileage. I never worry about gas prices. It has 138 hp which may seem underpowered for some, but I think this car has a lot of pep. The cabin seems spacious for a compact car. It is easy to park. Very low maintenance costs. I paid for the servicing from the dealer which seemed costly, but no major repairs. I really like the car, so it's hard to find the negatives. It serves me well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great little car. Reliable and the cabin seems spacious for a compact. I like the interior and the flexible space in the back has proven useful when transporting items from stores. I like that it has "pep." That is, I usually can lead traffic even when I'm not pressing the gas pedal hard. The normal mode on the car is Overdrive and that may have something to do with it. I just know I like it. I think the car is pretty. So it seems more like a chick car. But I have seen men drive it.

Cons: It's hard for me to say because I really have enjoyed this car so much. People have said that there was a lot of cabin noise, but I don't really notice it.

Great For What We Use It, Shopping And Short Trips — Versatile, problem-free and economical city transport. Perfect for shopping and short trips. Large items are no problem. Rear hatchback window opens so long items can be secured without damaging the interior of the vehicle. The only option that should be standard is the cargo net, use it for EVERYTHING from eggs to flowers. Ed

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Roomy and problem free

Cons: Tight for six footer and a little noisy for highway travel
