Summary:

Great fun awesome car to drive

Faults:

None.

General Comments:

Love the car; a great comfortable ride, mpg (gas) could be better... I don't trust the computer on the dashboard; on a recent road trip it said that I was only getting 19 mpg, but when I did the math myself, I actually got 30mpg on my road trip and it was all highway. Now driving in NYC, that's where I get hurt in the mpg.

But other than that, I love the car, only had it for 3 months so far, but it's been a blast to drive and the sound system in it is great.

I get about the same mileage too. You do have to be careful as it does need to be mashed for highway passing or hill climbing.

Turning circle is too big. I know it's front wheel drive, but sometimes it takes a second correction to park it in smaller spots. Cheap interior plastics complete with rough edges (unacceptable for a new vehicle).

This car needs a V6 or a turbo 4 to be better.

I had a 2007 PT Cruiser as a temporary rental for two weeks when my car was written off in a car accident.

It was underpowered on the freeway and had very poor gas mileage. According to it's own internal computer 14.5l/100k which to me was roughly DOUBLE of what my car used in gas.

Why are the window controls on the center panel and not on the door?

You needed to plan on how you pass when on the freeway as it runs out of steam pretty quick.

Rear hatch didn't have any sort of door mechanism, just yank on it and if it's unlocked it will pop open, if it's locked, be prepared to dislocate your shoulder.

MP3 input is a nice touch on the radio, but can't they think of a better place to put the plug? why not route it into a cup holder or somewhere close?

Drove like a minivan, although I did come from a sports car before.

My rental was white. It was ugly. I called it an igloo on wheels. I should have taken the yaris as a rental instead.
