I truthfully don't have too many complains about this car. It's currently ten years old and still doesn't let me down. I absolutely love the gas mileage on this vehicle - since I travel a lot, that's something I look for in a car. The interior and exterior show pretty minimal wear and tear for how much use the car has gotten.
Story
I travel a lot in my car, so my best memories wouldn't be in my local area, but more so traveling to states away to visit friends/see what there is to see.
Pros
A+++ gas mileage. Very easy to upkeep.
Cons
It kind of makes a lot of noise when the air conditioning is running - I'm not sure if that's just my car, but it's been happening since I got the car in 2012. Also, the check engine & airbag lights come off and on periodically, and I've had them checked and it's just a sensor issue, apparently.

It lasted me a long time but had some major flaws. Was not fun to drive. Very loud but it got the job done, and it survived longer than I thought it would. I enjoyed the compact size but little else. Rust and deterioration happened quicker than I would have liked. Overall quality was poor. When I bought the car originally, it didn't even pass inspection, but luckily I was still under the dealership warranty so they had to replace the catalytic converter and do a few other repairs for it to pass. Currently, it needs new tires and brakes, but I plan on replacing it before repairing. I would not recommend this and if I could go back in time, I would not have chosen that car for myself. It got the job done, but after owning it for only four years, there was a lot of maintenance that needed... (more)
Story
It went many miles with me, but I have limited love for that car and our time together.
Pros
The car went many miles more than I thought it was capable of. I like the compact size which is good for city driving. I also like the placement of the seat and steering wheel which is suited well for a short smaller person. I enjoyed that black color, and the interior beige color wasn't bad either. I'm happy that the heat and A/C has continued to work. I had major concerns that would give out like a lot of the other features. It has good mpg.
Cons
There were many negative things about this vehicle. It started to rust almost immediately after purchase. It was only able to survive one winter before the rust set in. As soon as I drove the car out of the dealership, a hub cap was lost. And within about two weeks all the hub caps had fallen off. Within two years some kind of electrical issue started where every time the car was locked or unlocked, it would make this terrible screeching noise. It is extremely loud to drive, and it often feels like the wheels could pop off at any moment. The brakes are terrible and barely keep the car from... (more)
