4.0

Good little car all round

Ride could be a bit smoother, I has a pretty exterior good for city and good on the highway could have bit more power is 5th and 6th (they are a bit gutless). It has been reliable and cheap to maintain the tires are cheap for a car. great ABS and the grip in the winter and despite the fairly low clearance front wheel drive it can actually go though a foot of snow with a decent driver.

5.0

Great little commuter car

This fits the bill of reliable commuter car. It won't wow anyone, but it's light, economical to run, and bulletproof from a reliability standpoint. Look for a clean, low-mileage example to get the most out of your purchase.

5.0

A very good economy car

The car is fun to drive and easy to park. the stereo and interior are basic and easy to navigate but needs a back up camera
