Great car! Questionable service
Passenger door window rattles if not fully open or closed.
Air conditioning doesn't work as well as it should.
Some times, especially in cool or cold weather it takes a few seconds till the car starts. (unless gas pedal is pushed)
Interior squeaks when making a slow turn.
Rear doors squeak every 5000 KM
Dealer some how does not find any problems?
This car does live up to it's reputation as being a pocket rocket. Even though I have an automatic it is easily the fastest car I've been in under $24000, (my price range). The handling is very good. At times you do feel the bumps of pot holes, but nothing that isn't expected for a semi tight suspension.
The breaking is good, wind noise is expected.
For a small car the truck does have a lot of room however the rear seats are better left for children and small adults.
I side for the above mentioned problems the maintenance on the car has been everything in the owners manual. No surprises yet.
I get 21 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
I would recommend buying a SE-R.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
