Overall:

Peppy — Decent ride, handles really well and is very responsive. I have not owned the car for to long yet but it comes with a decent radio system and lots of space. best thing tho is unlike my old audi it has full on cup holders that hug your cup in the holes.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car for long drives

Cons: Low visibility in the blind spots, and the trunk is to high to look over it easily to judge where your at when backing up. The car is pretty light so it tends to be easily blown around in windy conditions
