This car has great value in its class. The interior is roomy and the backeat allows for me to easily put in and take out a carseat for my child (which is hard to find in a lot of cars now days it seems!). It drives very smooth and handles turns well. Being very short (I am 5'3"), I had good visbility and was easily able to reach the pedals and still feel like I had room between myself and the steering wheel. The radio is great - has nice, rich bass - and that is a big plus for me. Overall, it has been a great car to drive, receives pretty good gas mileage and has served my family well. It was a great deal and value for the money!
The car is great when it's not having issues. I've had my car less than a year. Just after 60,000 miles the transimition went along with a sensor that took a 3 week to get, then the front bearings, I even went as far as to replace/upgrading the front brakes and rotors (that were still in good condition) to try and get my car back to what it should be. So after all this and over 3 of the almost 12 months with out my car, it still having problems that no one can figure out! I'm lucky to still have a job as much time and energy as I've spent on dealing with this car. I would NEVER recommend this car to anyone, friend or otherwise! Spend your money wiser than I did and find a different car! Good luck.
