Overall the car is a blast. Comfortable to drive and very sporty. It is average when your just cruising then when you hit the gas pedal it let's loose. It is very fun to drive fits my family and when I feel the need to just pick up speed it does it flawlessly.
Disappointed and Humiliated

I will recommend to anyone, whos looking for a sport car, buy it new if possible. And if its used, make sure you buy it from someone who knows really well, about the car you buying. My personal experience is -10, from transmission and fuel pump problems, to a tire falling out of the car, running. Yeah you heard right. The tire came out. Anyways. As i said, you want a mitsu ralliart or an evo. Go to mitsubishi.
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.
For those in the market for a compact hatchback, the Chevrolet Spark is a top contender. With sleek styling and easy maneuverability, the Chevrolet Spark packs a lot into a small package. Check out our review of the Chevrolet Spark to learn more.
