It's an OK vehicle that gets you where you are going and back again
Nothing has gone wrong with this little car except that the silly screw that hold the driver's side sun visor keeps popping out.
OK, this is a good LITTLE vehicle overall, but there are some issued.
I have the four cylinder and there isn't much power - even with that little power button punched!
The seats are not the most comfortable for my aging bottom, and I would really like to have a console.
The biggest problem that I have is that this boxy vehicle cannot handle curves. I knew that going in, and I think my Honda Accord really spoiled me, but sometimes it is flat out scary. Especially if it has been raining.
I also have rear wheel anti-lock brakes. The first time they deployed the front end swung like a pendulum. Scared me half to death.
What I really found interesting is that the Honda & Toyota versions are all manufactured at the same place. The only difference, besides the increades price, are some basic exterior designs.
I just had my 30,000 mile check-up.
Worth what I paid for it, but if I stay with a Mini-SUV I will opt for the six cylinder.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
