Small, fun and cost effective.

It is small, easy to drive, easy on gas. Can still fit 5 people, or 4 if the people are "bigger". Still have room in the hatch for a lot of stuff. Not much else to tell?. . I do not try to see how many speeding tickets I can get, but it can go above 80 with no problem. . . It does well in the snow.

It is small, spacious inside, AUX cord, seat warmers.

I love my car. The only thing is when getting oil changed you have to use synthetic which cost more. If you accidentally hit another car so lightly, it easily dents. It has awesome seat warmers. Love how small it is, not too big, I am 5ft so it is the perfect size. Love the radio and aux.

it's basically a good car. I have not had hardly any problems with my car, except for what I said about key and oil change...and those are not that serious.

I love it for the most part. It's good on gas, small and drives smooth.The things I do not like about this car are that it needs synthetic oil for oil changes, which costs extra. Also, the only key entrance is on driver side, that is not good when the key fob needs a new battery.
