This has been a great little car for us. I use it as my daily commuter and its been dependable. Outside of brakes, tires, etc., we haven't had to do much to it at all. Road noise is a little loud and it doesn't have much get up and go (turning off the A/C when you really need the acceleration helps). We got a great deal on this car and its worked out for us, but we are likely to buy a Honda or Toyota next time around.
