NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) levels are too high, the manual transmission has throws that are long and clunky in between gears and the car is generally loud at speed. This car feels like the base model it is. When you close the doors there is a loud clang that resonates through the entire car from lack of sound insulation in the roof, my family and I now make a joke out of it as each one of us that climbs in the car must shout clang after they close the door, it's a sort of bonding experience. I've been in a 2013 / 14 and the NVH levels seem to be much much better. That being said this car is very practical in terms of space and is bulletproof in terms of reliability.

Surprisingly fast. Hugs road like sports car. Went into center ditch at 70 mph and stability control kept car upright and in line back on highway. Saved my bacon! Terrific in wet weather. Traction control and amazing ABS brakes maintain safety. Love upright seating position, backup camera omits blind spot, cavernous inside, 32+ mpg on highway cruise, killer stereo, super smooth transmission, not even a burned out bulb so far.

I chose this model for the interior height. I find it quite comfortable as am a tall older woman with hip trouble. Thus far the car hasn't given me any problems. Overall I am pleased with my little car, however, I find it to be a bit noisy. Im still adjusting to the width of the vehicle when on the road, The trunk is roomy enough for my needs and running around with the grand kids who always carry their backpacks.
