Like 9 out 10 used car dealers. This one doesnt want to respond via email to my queries. Since the Moto for the majority of sales people BS over facts. His response was No. Thats it. Hes will be put on my do not deal with category. Cargurus should do the same. Uses friends and relatives to give them positive responses most likely. As the say buyer beware.

A day after I bought the car, the engine light came on and it needed a new catalytic converter. The charger was also broken in the car. And the rear brake shoes needed to be replaced. All in all drivable but $1000 in extra work on repairs.

The car was in bad condition. Damage all around the exterior of the car and interior that wasnt shown in the photos. The inside of the car was dirty and not worth the pruce they had listed. Overall cheap car salesmen selling cars.

Good Commuter Car. Very Practicle. — Purchased this car for commuting to work. It is a perfect commuter car. I'm not really impressed or disapointed with this vehicle. It is very reliable and great on fuel. could be a great family car alternative to a full size SUV. Roomier then it looks from the outside. Plenty of cargo space.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fuel efficent. compact, large cargo space.

Cons: not very powerful. not stylish. very expensive to insure.

Money Saver. I Changed To This Car And Noticed Immediate Savings In Gas. Very Content. — This car is great. I loved the space, accommodations, and the general smooth ride of the CVT. I would recommend this to new drivers and to women. The overall aesthetics of the car isn't as sporty as I would like it to appear. However, this car trumps all at the end of the month because your gas bill drops tremendously.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fuel economy. Trip to work, I average 43mpg.
A lot more spacious than it looks.

Cons: Trunk space isn't that great. Also, I don't like how the engineers installed the brake cover flaps. One seems to break every year. Inexpensive but annoying.

Great — I like this car is so smoth when you drive . When you are driving you can talk without using your hands free and is great and fun to drive. Is good on gas and has space for 5 people. Driving thru a bump is fun you do not feel it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Is great on gas

Cons: N/a

Would Recommend To Budget Conscious Family, Not Someone Looking For A Peppy Compact. — Easily one of the least exciting and least powerful cars I've driven; however, this car is an economically amazing machine. For a starting price under 11k for a new vehicle, and well equipped for a subcompact at 14k, you can get a reliable, great gas mileage, and great interior space car and nothing can beat it. If you're looking for a fun driver's car, this isn't it. If you're looking for a cheap, reliable, spacious family car, definitely consider it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Space, price, mpg, interior space.

Cons: Lack of power, numb handling, low resale value.
