Gets you there for cheap

It’s cheaply built and it shows in a lot of the features. But I bought it for fuel economy, and I couldn’t be more happy with that! If you need to get somewhere on the cheap- I’d recommend this car.

Good affordable car

I just hit 50,000 miles and so far so good. It has been a great commuter car for me. Good on gas and comfortable. It looks really good from the sides in the front but looks tiny if you look at the car from the back. Overall it has been a good car
