Great gas mileage
October 16, 2018
I use this car for business purposes. I drive about 1500 miles per month. I live in Colorado so it’s cold in the winter. I get approximately 42 miles to the gallon in the winter and about 38 in the summer because of the air conditioning. This is definitely not a luxury vehicle but it’s really not bad especially for the price. It has a great turning radius. There is a lot more room inside then you would expect.
It has a very tight suspension so you are very aware of every bump that you hit. It also has a 70 hp engine so if you expect to get from 0 to 60 in anything less than five minutes this probably isn’t the car for you. However, I have never had any issues with the car and is very reliable. I have put approximately 40,000 miles on it since I got it and it currently has 60,000.
My biggest complaint with the car is that rattles regularly, like something is loose but I cannot figure out what it is. It is worth mentioning that this used to be a ’Car to Go’ and who knows what they did to it to fit it for their credit card charging systems, so this may be their fault. You can hear road noise quite a bit in this car.
I love the fact that it is little and you can park it anywhere. You could make a U-turn basically anywhere. It does not go well in the snow so if you live in a snowy climate you might consider something else unless you have a winter vehicle.
