Decent Small Family Car — good interior room for such a small car, I bought it because I have three kids and really wanted a manual transmission. Gas mileage is great and handling is excellent. Their Zoom-zoom thing is really a short first gear and a high clutch engagement so the car spins its wheel from a stoplight far too easily. Poor tires and suspension had to be replaced early.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good interior room for such a small car, I bought it because I have three kids and really wanted a manual transmission. Gas mileage is great and handling is excellent.

Cons: Their Zoom-zoom thing is really a short first gear and a high clutch engagement so the car spins its wheel from a stoplight far too easily. Poor tires and suspension had to be replaced early.

Efficient In All Aspects — I have been impressed with this car since I purchased it. I purchased for my mom who needed a more accessible car. The seats are at the perfect height, the doors are light enough for her to manage. She can ride comfortably in the middle seats. The sliding rear doors make it so the grandchildren are not dinging doors in parking lots. There is plenty of cargo space. The ability to have a fan in the back and control the air conditioning is nice. It is a smooth ride. I enjoy the fact that this car seats 6 yet is only a foot, maybe, longer than my Mazda Protege. I can't get enough of the seat warmers. There are a ton of bells and whistles that take some getting use to but overall it is a great, fun vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Easy to get in and out of.  Cup holders every where. Carries a lot of people or stuff.  Good sound system come factory installed.  Most controls are in very accessible areas.  Kid friendly yet stylish.  Fits easily in small two car garage with second car.

Cons: Steering wheel controls are a little small.
