While I wouldn't recommend this specific model I would recommend the later ones. With this 12' veloster it has the tendency to roll back on hill which I am not use to. The newer models I believe have anti-roll back in them. With living on the east coast I can already tell it will be a hassle with the snow we get. The acceleration can feel little weird at times but is really okay.
MPG is Too Good

Going from a 3.3 V6 to a mid-sized 4-cylinder was indeed an adjustment, but one that makes so much sense. There is no need for a V6 in a car, especially when it's for a daily commute and the occasional road trip. The fuel economy should be reason enough.

The car didn't have the pick up being a turbo that my Mini Cooper S has so I was disappointed with that. Also I was told it was "PERFECT". When I looked over the vehicle it was perfect inside but outside there are many nicks and scratches that have been touched up on the passenger side of car. Front fender, inside passenger door lower edge, back by hatch back door has scratches, and passenger tire rims have touch ups also.
