Forgot to add great hybrid mileage. Great car but could use better technology.

This car is not as technologically advanced as I would like it to be. You cannot link your phone GPS or audiobooks into the car's speakers nor it is own GPS screen. Many other cars do that. I also wish it had the sensors that you are going over the street painted lines. The great things I like is that it is easy to handle. Has the rain sensor wipers that come on automatically when it starts raining. It has the auto lights where you set the knob on the car and when you start your car your lights automatically go on even during the day and when you turn the car off, the lights go off. I am not very happy with the keyless entry due to the fact that you literally have to have the key within 6-12 inches of the car for the hand sensors to work. I have many times had my purse strap over my shoulder and it still will not work. I literally have to turn my body moving the purse closer to the handle in order for it to work. Also if I use the fob to find my car in a parking lot, it does not work unless I am 10 feet or less away from my car. Really defeats the purpose of trying to find your car since if I am 10 feet away, I should be able to see the car.

Drives like a dream but brakes could be less touchy.

It performs great and drives very well and smoothly with practice. When I first drove the car, I did not care for how touchy the brakes were and how it felt a little too jerky for my taste. However, as I got used to handling the car, I loved how easily it was to switch lanes, accelerate and decelerate, and back up. One problem I do have with it is there are a few blind spots that took me quite a while to get used to. This also goes along with my brakes. They are very touchy and while I am used to them so they do not brake as hard when I am driving, I get many comments by others who have driven my car for a short amount of time about how touchy the brakes are. While this may sound like an annoyance, I am actually grateful for how touchy the brakes are because they have saved me and my family numerous times from getting into a serious accident. For how small the car is, it is also quite roomy which I enjoy.

Gas mileage and environmental features.

Has great gas mileage. It is heavier than the Prius so has a quieter ride albeit less mileage. But I am happy with 45. The rear seats lay down totally flat. Vehicle has great visibility. Cons for me personally is the air circulation is not as good as my old Honda and everything lights up at night such as foot wells, seat heater controls, cup holders, but the ignition key port does not. Maybe just my own pet peeve but if I can see where to put my coffee why shouldn't I expect to see the keyhole.
