    Great For Family And Hauling — Love the car but am getting married and it is no longer needed!! It has always been dependable and it drives great on mountain roads. I hope to find her a great new owner who will enjoy her as much I have!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive, great mpg, sporty look and is great for trips and hauling cargo!

    Cons: Not great for really tall folks.

    I Have Not Had It Long, But I Like It So Far.. — I like the car so far, it is fun to drive and seems to have good gas mileage. Not so good on ice and snow, and doesn't have much pick up when you accelerate..I like the look, not too big or small and the color is nice. I am hoping it will not need many repairs, I would refer it to a friend.

    Over All Not A Bad Car. — It has a good get up and go but the seats could be built to be more comfortable. The braking is good, acceleration is good. No repairs yet. Gas mileage is good. Mine has a sun roof. I like that.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The 5 year warrenty

    Cons: The seats are really not all that great.
