Summary:

In the scale of 1 to 10 it's 9 so far

Faults:

So far so good, as expected with the good reviews I've read in the web, it has far exceeded my expectations.

I had the original wheels changed with mags and it has made the car stand out from its original picture. The original looks cheap with the half plastic cap.

Nice dashboard and roomy from the inside. Three medium built passenger for the rear, they still feel comfortable.

Very easy to park, with it's size. But I still have not tested it's fuel consumption as advertised.

General Comments:

I am looking forward too many good years with this vehicle, I hope it can serve me well, office, home, school for kid.

Gas consumption has been one of my considerations, hopefully it will perform as economical as they project it to be.

With curves though I need to slow down a lot it's not like the standard sedan or the pick up that you could maneuver well even at a bit higher speed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How's your gas consumption (km/L)? My family and I are planning to get a 2007 - 2005 Picanto Model.
