Good little car
"I've owned this car for about 2 years now. Its a good small car for those who need one. It does seem to have a power drain somewhere though. The stereo has a noticeable volume difference when the AC or Heater are on or when I am speeding down a highway. Its also a very invisible car. Its so common looking that a lot of other drivers never seem to see it. "

I like the easy to see controls. And I like having all of the empty glove space. However, the car is just a little bit cramped as far as room goes.
Exterior

4.0

Beautiful exterior, but as I said, its pretty common as it looks similar to a modern Honda and other cars of its type. This does bring it some collision risk.

It tends to be lacking in power. The car will not gun very well, nor will it go fast in 60 seconds. Going uphill from a complete stop can cause a small stall in the engine as it works to get the power needed to move forward.

I can only give this two stars as the space in the vehicle is extremely limited. Its ok if you have small kids. But if you have large kids, prepare for your back to be kicked by them.

I get good gas mileage with it. I have not had any mechanical problems with it yet. So far, its about average on preventive care and gas milage.
