It is fun to drive. Gas mileage is great for a non-hybrid/gas-only vehicle. (I wish they marketed the diesel model in the US). Easy to park. You don't have the sense that you're in a "micro" vehicle. I tell people that it is small on the outside and big on the inside.
rough to drive///how ever

I own one but before you get into one there are a couple of things you might want to know.
It drives rough, but it is excellent for daily driver. Gas consumption depends in how one drives it, average gas per month $80ish and that's driving like it got stolen.
Also, FYI. this model is made by Daimler AKA Benz. so parts are not cheap.
In reality dont let its size fool you. Pound per pound (aint a cheap car).
Tires: depends on what model you get you might end you paying ($75 to 250) each.
Gas: premium to medium
Oil: depends on mileage
It's worse then what it appears.

It drives really bad.
Changes gears horribly (because it has an electric clutch) gets really hot inside, regardless of AC on full blast. Not good on freeways.
The car broke down, two weeks after canceling extended warranty. <----- that's how it always happens.
