Handling is good, feels solid.
Suspension is pretty soft, considering Quebec road conditions and holes everywhere.
A/C takes time to kick in, but gets very cold.
Heating is good.
Seat and overall comfort is really good. Cars usually bring me lower back pain very quickly due to injury, and this one doesn't.
Good engine, trouble free so far. The 2.0 gives a good start.
Audio system is pretty good for the price of the car, no problem with it.
Huge trunk for its class.
Decent leg and head room in the front and back, but our baby seat cannot be installed on the suggested rear facing angle.
Seats fold down for extra space.
Heated seats and mirrors, and they're good and fast.
As others have stated, the engine really lacks power for getting onto the highway, hill climbing and passing; lots of noise and no acceleration in those situations.
Interior is really cheap materials and poor build quality.
The dash is a dust magnet.
Brakes are squealing, even after new brakes were installed.
Radio antenna is in a weird position on the roof; will break easily with ice, mine did.
Everything is optional, lots of them are poorly equipped. Mine has heated seats/mirrors but no power windows... What?
No ABS or anti-lock system, no traction system; winter driving even in winter tires will make the tail of this car slip at every stop in a snow storm and on ice. Be prepared to buy very good quality winter tires to compensate for this.
Rear visibility is not the best in class for parking.
Decent car for the price, soft ride, comfortable
Lack of safety systems, poor build quality, cheap materials.
Will get you around 20-25 mpg city, 30ish highway. Don't expect much more than 23-25 combined or 11L / 100km; so so for a 4cyl.
So many problems with doors, handles and latches shouldn't be happening on a 4 year old car when I bought it with only 60k km on it. Maybe I'm the only case, if not, maybe it's a design issue. Check the door electric system before buying.
