This car is very reliable and does not require extensive upkeep.

The car has very smooth shocks and works well even in the snow. The radio system is very reliable and the seat warmers are effective as well. The car has excellent fuel efficiency and air conditioning. The trunk space is quite nice, despite how compact the car is.

Now that my car is getting old I have had several repairs which are mostly rubber or plastic aging in our hot sunny climate. My car is still fun to drive with great handling and is reliable transportation.

This car gets bad gas mileage.

I dislike the gas mileage. I love the amount of space it has. I love that it is a hatchback it is super convenient to fit a lot of things in. I dislike the radio system.
