I was initially concerned about two things (slow acceleration, and no spare tire). Both of these issues made me think twice about the vehicle. However, it drives exceptionally well, and has more features than any other similar vehicle.
I have the Style Package, and for the extra $2000, I got a lot of luxury items. I highly recommend getting the Style Package.
As far as acceleration, it's true that it isn't first off the line (my Dad's 2006 Corolla accelerates faster). However, once I'm out of 2nd or 3rd gear, I don't notice any performance issues. I haven't had a lot of highway experience with it yet, but if it performs similarly to the city driving, I'll be very happy.
I was also standoffish about not having a spare. But other manufacturers are starting to do this too (to save weight for fuel economy), and it comes equipped with a patch kit and pump (and Hyundai has great roadside assistance). If I end up doing a lot of long distance driving, perhaps I'll get a spare and a jack.
Right now, I'm rocking around 32 mpg, and that is with virtually no highway driving.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the vehicle. The blind spots are a bit rough, but I'm getting used to them. But for the money, I couldn't find a vehicle with as many amenities or visual appeal as this one.
It's also worth mentioning that it has a HUGE storage capacity and great safety measures.
