Basic car that gets you from point A to point B with no extra perks. Car easily spins out on icey roads and gets stuck in even just a few inches of snow due to being so lightweight. Car broke down in the middle of a highway due to major issues with ignition that needed to be recalled. Has average fuel range.
Story
Driving a long-distance road trip from MN to CA. Driving to Yellowstone and other camping destinations.
Pros
Automatic lights. Was inexpensive to buy. Average fuel range. Small and relatively compact. Good on rough roads or terrain. Can put down back seat for more trunk space.
Cons
Ignition problem causing dangerous breakdown while driving. Spins out easily on ice. Gets stuck in snow. No automatic locks. Slow acceleration. Uncomfortable seats. Boring design. Too lightweight. Roll-up windows.

Overall the car was good for a first vehicle. Put on a lot of miles and only a few minor issues. Holding up great for being an old car with over 150,000 miles on it. Reliable and great on gas. Easy to get up to speed and maintained speed well. Decent in the snow but the better tires helped a lot. Easy to maintain and at a low cost. Great first car for young kids learning to drive. There was a lot of space in the trunk. The fold down space made moving things in the car easy.
Story
5 Of us took a road trip from Milwaukee to Ladysmith in the car. We had a weekend's worth of camping stuff in the car. It was a tight fit but made the trip a ton of fun. Large enough to take us.
Pros
Run great and great on gas. High miles and still runs great. No major issues just normal repairs needed. Cheap car parts which made for easy maintenance. Large trunk space. Fold down seats were great.
Cons
As it was a 2005, windows and doors were manual. This was a very simple car. Trunk has a small opening. Can not put two car seats in the car and still have leg room in the front seat. Not a great car for families. Windows in the back seat don't roll down all the way. Almost but not all the way.

The sales people are really friendly and happy to help but not pushy. The service department is great and was a pleasure to work with. Nice selection of cars. The sales prices are good. The dealership is located close to home. They really worked with us and helped us to get our new vehicle.
