If you're interested in a value vehicle and don't mind the stigma associated with driving this car, then you have a winner.
This car consistently gets 30+mpg - especially when it is driven < 70km/hr. If however you do a lot of highway driving, this car probably isn't for you, as I find the mileage goes down significantly because the rpm rev higher (i.e. 3-4,000+ rpm) when driven 100+ km/hr., particularly in hilly areas.
Otherwise though, this car is great. It has loads of room for a sub-compact, and the back seats can be lowered for long items. The gas use is great, and the overall reliability is much better than average.
It's true that this car feels EVERY bump in the road, so just watch the potholes and your suspension should be good for the life of the vehicle. The car even drives remarkably well in the snow as well, even without snow tires.
This car has been the best value ever. This car can easily go another 100,000km no problem - all for under $5,000.
