In the beginning, the car had a few minor problems that were replaced under warranty. After about 30000km, the car settled down and has been remarkably reliable.
With the exception of my fuel pump - which I must admit driving on empty one hot summer day - the rest of my 'problems' have been regular wear and tear.
As for daily driving... well let's face it, it's an economy car. Performance is on par with other cars in its class (10.5 seconds 0-60mph). Despite all the cheap plastic bits and pieces in this car, they have all survived the test of time. Even such fragile pieces as the inner door handles and window cranks.
Engine noise is pervasive, but is not overly unpleasant, provided you use your radio.
Overall, a great first car and something some of the import diehards may miss. That's good for the consumer since you'll be liable to get a good deal on one as a result.
