Very comfortable, very reliable, great car
Basically nothing! This has been a great car. The only things that I have had problems with are:
The button that tells if the passenger air bad is on/off...well its not a button.. and I tried pushing it and pushed it into the dash. This was fixed with a shop vac, it sucked back out and clicked into place. Also, the brakes have worn fairly quickly, I'm already getting the pads replaced at 7900 miles. Probably my breaking, and the fact that it is almost all city mileage.
This car is much better than I had expected out of an economy car. The interior, while not luxury looking, is extremely comfortable, in city driving, and especially on long trips, almost to the point of making you fall asleep (which I've almost done on several occasions.) It is also very very quiet, very low road noise, very very smooth ride.
Gas mileage is good, but somewhat confusing. For example, recently I wanted to test my gas mileage in city driving with a/c on. I got 175 out of the first half tank, 75 out of the second half. Overall city mileage, even without a/c, is OK. 26-28. Highway, however, amazing. My ex girlfriend lived about 40 minutes away, and I would drive to see her a couple times a week. During that time, I got around 380-400 miles per tank. Highway driving, this car is awesome! And with only 11 gallons of gas, you do the math.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
