Reliable and fuel efficient
Regular stuff (front brakes* once, battery once, tires once).
Door to storage compartment under stereo broke off (known issue).
* This base model 5-speed sat in the used car parking lot for 2 years (I walked by it daily with the dog), so the brake rotors were shot soon after I got it. Remember, I live on an island surrounded by salt water with humid winters (add salt spray from cars driving by this dealership).
Summary - for all intents and purposes, I could say that nothing has gone wrong with this car.
Most reliable car I have owned.
Performs better than I would expect an entry-level economical fuel-sipper to.
One flaw: driver's seat gets really uncomfortable after about 4 hours of driving (I'm 6'1").
Overall, very satisfied.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
