For some reason, the battery is drained if the door is slightly ajar when the car is turned off. I assumed my battery was bad and had to buy a new one, only to have it die as well. It was tough finding the problem.
There is an annoying screechy buzzing when you first turn on the car, telling you to fasten your seat belts.
The hatchback has a tendency to fall on your head in cold or wet weather.
In speeds of over about 70 mph, it's a bit hard to steer, and it's so light the wind whips it about.
A spark plug has jumped out of place twice.
Last month a headlamp burned out.
It is not very suitable for very large people, my friend is 6'4 and he has to slump over when riding in it.
The pedals are so tiny, sometimes you can lose the gas pedal when you take your foot off of it to put on the brake.
It's a tough little car. It's very durable. I have a dog and a little brother and it's interior has withstood both of them.
It gets very good gas mileage, a must in the times of ever-growing gas prices. I drove it from Ohio to Alabama without having to stop for gas once!
It is very reliable and has never failed to start. And it has never left me stranded by the road either!
It is more spacious on the inside than you would think. Once you sit down in it, you can't believe it looks so small from the outside.
Long distance trips are great in it, it flies down the highway with enthusiasm, passing up much larger cars. And you hardly ever need to stop for gas.
It has a lot of power for tiny a 3-cylinder engine, and if you need to make repairs, everything under the hood is very accessible.
