I bought this new car in 2007 and never EVER had a problem with it!!! I have friends that have nissan, ford and all other expensive cars and they had to take it to the mechanic a couple of time at least. My car is a little jewel and so far (knock on wood) I had no problems at all.

This is the first car that I've ever bought (before I used the family car) and I absolutely love it! Originally I had wanted a Toyota Matrix or Pontiac Vibe, but those were just too expensive. This car really gets a lot of bang for the buck! The only two complaints I have are that: #1: It doesn't have cruise control. (I'm not sure if all models are without, or just some) And this really isn't that big of a deal unless I'm traveling long distances. #2: I wish there were a little bit more cargo space. I'm going off to college next semester and am kind of nervous about what all it can hold. But thankfull the seats fold flat, and there's a small shelf feature (I think it's mainly just for privacy...but I sometimes put small items there) in the back so I can put some small items on top of there. Other than that it's perfect! Drives really well, the front seats are amazing comfortable, has an awesome sound system, amazing price, and I would recommend this car to anyone!

the most bang for the money with the power package. after two months ownership, have found nothing i don't like, except why put a 140mph spedometer on an auto with 110hp? a joy to look at and drive. triple door seals make it quiet even in cross winds. worst mileage was 28 in town with autotrans and air cond on. if i had triple stall garage, i would buy another one.

runs great and handles nicely, except for the mechanical problems encoutered. the warranty sounds nice until you run into mechanical problems. It is comfortable for the front seat passengers, but forget about those in the back. There's very little leg room. As for the trunk, there's enough room to handle 2 suitcases and a couple of bags

I've had this car for a year and have not had one major issue until now, There's a leak in my transmission and the fluid is black. Getting fixed tomorrow hope it helps but you couldn't even tell it drives perfect and save so so much on gas. I would agree then comfort could have been better and no CRUISE CONTROL wth is with that. Other than that perfect little car.
