Good for me and the environment.

Bought this car new in 2013. Did a few long trips 4000kms and also lots of big city and street driving. I have 96000kms on the car. No breakdowns or service issues. Run it on synthetic oil.
The interior and exterior is well desidned and layer out. The only issue is the dash lights can't be completely turned off, which sucks at the drive in. But everything else works great and love love love the seat heaters.
Live in southern ontario, so have driven on 42+degree heat and -40 windchill. The car work great in both, no issues with start up in cold or hot. Only thing is the fuel milage drops during the cold, as the car runs on gas to heat the engine. A block heater would be nice.
The tires on the car lasted 90000kms and could have gone more, but wanted a new set of rubber for winter. Great ride, low noise and friction.
Biggest thing is the car works on electric / gas / electric & gas. But you need to go easy on the throttle to get great fuel economy. Also, the car starts off in electric, then as the battery charge drops, it runs in gas/electric or straight gas. If you take your foot off the accelerater, or you brake, the car converts the energy from slowing down into battery charge.
Overall, love the looks, the style the interior layout, and the fuel economy. One of the best decisions I've made to buy this car!
