Very great first car or great used car purchase for a new driver or teenager.
This was my first and only car. It has been extremely reliable. Little to no issues as far as maintenance. I recommend regular tire rotations as the car is low profile and the front wheel drive causes the front tires to wear faster than the back if not regularly rotated. Cosmetically the piece on the trunk hatch did crack and break off and I know this is a common issue for this year and model in particular. This was very cheap and easy to replace. I know this model no longer exists brand new but I fully recommend as a great used car purchase.
Double sunroof is a plus!
Car seats are really comfortable and there's a surprising amount of legroom in the back for as small as the car is. The only thing that I would say is a negative is that looking over my left shoulder to merge, you really have to be careful cause the back window is small and you have to check a few angles to make sure you're clear to merge over.
The car can be fun to drive and the vehicle is not very convenient.
The suspension in this car poor. I can feel each pump on the road. The cars lack of traction control can make it harder to drive and is less safe. The a and c posts create poor vision out back and sides. The interior feels juvenile. The gas mileage is poor as well.
