Sporty look and works excellent as a utility vehicle.

My car is the 2 door hatchback model. The back seat will fold down to extend the carrying capacity. It's deceptively large and holds more than one would think. It has power windows, door locks and has the chip in the key which makes it difficult for someone to steal without the actual key. One thing I do not like about it is the dash and the lack of more thorough warning lights. The check engine light can come on for something simple like needing an oil change, to o2 sensors needing replaced. Without a reader it makes it difficult to narrow the problem. It also has a faulty fuel cap light. My cap had been left at a gas station and so the warning light came on. After replacing the cap the light will not reset. That simple light made the car fail at an emissions test! The car does ride well and is comfortable to sit in. My little car is a favorite of the grandkids and I hope to be able to continue driving it for years to come.

The car is a four door with a spoiler in the back.

This car has been pretty reliable overall. The issues I've had so far are the alternator needing replacing twice, the plastic interior parts are cracking and breaking and a major electrical issue that is a nuisance. The electrical issue causes the console displays to freeze up and the stereo to stop working (not even displaying the time). I was having a problem with the battery being drained and realized that it was the electrical issue causing it and that the stereo was still drawing power when the car was turned off if it had frozen up and hadn't been shut off when the car was turned off. Now we just don't use the stereo anymore and it has solved the issue.

Great little car, comes with some quirks though.

The turn radius is amazing. It is probably one of my favorite things about the car. It is very reliable. So far I have only had a few little things wrong with it. No major engine trouble so far, either. The brakes have just started to squeak, but they only do it early mornings when it is cold so mechanics never believe me. The biggest issue is that the key sometimes gets stuck in the ignition. It is as if the car does not realize I am in park. Sometimes I have to back out and park again to kind of "reset" the car. That is it is only major quirk though.
