Haven't replaced brakes yet since purchase new in 2010 labor day. Low cost of maintenance overall, but many owners forget about the CVT Transmission fluid servicing every 50k miles. Not the best for long distance drives, but for a daily work commute it gets the job done well. Also, I love the handling in this car and how it handles the elements very well.

This car has always been my favorite. The first week the car performed at its best. Like any older car it just catches your attention of what little things are good and bad about it.
nice basic car

This car has a CVT. It will drift back, while in drive, on an incline. Acceleration from standing is delayed. Rapid highway acceleration can seem like being in a slingshot. Sometimes the automatic "shifting" feels unusual/out of synch.
I would NOT recommend any CVT equipped vehicle for stop/go commuting or around town. For highway travel out of traffic, it's good. Personally, I'll stick to fully geared transmissions.
