I purchased my car on 2/18/2011 and so far, it has been running well and I've only had one issue, which was the battery going completely dead on me. I don't know much about cars, so I did not bother to check under the hood, so I ended up with a bad battery that hadn't been changed since 2007. So I spent $108 on a new battery because my extended warranty does not cover batteries. Not to mention I was 2 1/2 hours late for work!
This is my first car, and even though I ran into the issue with my battery dying on me, I like my car and how it runs. I have no other complaints so far about it. It was in good condition to be a used car, it's pretty good on gas as long as you're not driving as much as I am during the week and in one day. I would recommend this car to someone else if you are really in need of a car like I was, or if you just want something that's good on gas and to get around in.
Efficient, affordable, adorable

This was the first car I purchased without my parents support. The car makes me proud. It is small, but perfect for the city and gets great gas mileage on the highways. It is great for what it is as an older model. I do not mind having manual doors and windows, though I do wish the car had cruise control and pockets in the back of the driver and passenger seats. Otherwise there is plenty of storage space and room for passengers and a large trunk for all other cargo. It is a great first car and at 100,000+ miles still reliable and running great.
