When I first test drove the vehicle I noticed automatically how fast it was and how easily maneuverable the car was. The salesman showed me each feature of the car and I thoroughly enjoyed testing out each one. One thing that really caught my eye was the Heads Up Display, which showed the speed at which you were driving as well as how many car lengths you were behind the vehicle in front of you. I love how gas efficient the car is. If I set cruise control to the speed limit and let the car perform on it's own, I can average up to 40 miles per gallon. No other car I've owned has ever been able to give me that many miles per gallon and I was quite impressed. I also like that the car is a 2016 top safety pick. It is a MUST for me and my growing family to be traveling in a safe and reliabl... (more)
Story
While driving through the mountains at night, I noticed that the headlights would turn with the curvature of the roads and adjust themselves the turns I was making. It made the drive up feel like I was in the middle of a speed race and it was awesome to be able to experience driving like that.
Pros
The gas mileage cannot be beaten and with California gas prices the way they were when I first leased the vehicle, this was definitely a pleasant surprise. I love the heads up display, as it keeps my eyes on my speed without having to constantly look down at my speedometer to try and see how fast I am going. The city smart braking system and backup cameras are also great additional features of the vehicle. If for some reason I am getting too close to a vehicle and am unable to engage the brakes in time, the car will automatically do it for me. The backup camera beeps if there is an obstruc... (more)
Cons
The air conditioning could be a little bit stronger, as I am in an area where the summers are a scorcher. The navigation system is top of the line but it only enables you to do certain things when the car is in motion, making it aggravating if I need to change something if I get lost. I don't want to have to constantly pull over if I need to adjust something to my route. The Bluetooth doesn't always automatically sync with my iPhone and that can be frustrating at times. For a 2016 vehicle I am surprised that there is only a single disc player rather than a multiple disc player. Overall, th... (more)

I was looking for a good car to get around town for short distances. It had to run great and also be reliable. I also wanted to pay cash for the vehicle to avoid having a long loan over many years. This kept me to a strict budget of no more that $3,500. I was able to negotiate the car down to $3,000. I have been driving it for almost two years, and it has been amazing. I also was going from a large SUV downsizing to a small sedan. This car is perfect. Cute and fun to drive. Plenty of room. Rear seats fold down for larger items. Very easy to maneuver in small spots. Easy to park as well The gas mileage is amazing. I fill it up about once a month. Had to repair a few things but not bad for a car that is over 10 years old. One of the coil packs had to be replaced, but it was only $60 and ... (more)
Story
The best story I remember is a day trip down to the beach with my daughter. It was a spur of the moment type of trip. We decided when we woke up to take a day trip to Ocean City, MD. It is one of our favorite places to go. We packed up some snacks and drinks along with a beach bag full of towels, sunscreen, books and few other things. Grabbed some beach chairs, umbrellas and knee boards Packed... (more)
Pros
Gas mileage, fun to drive, reliable.
Cons
It needed some repairs to ensure safety.

I love my car for so many reasons. It is the prettiest blue color I've ever seen on a car. It looks very sporty, and it is very practical. It is a solid built car, and I have put a lot of miles on it, and it is still going strong. The doors are very solid, and you don't feel like you are driving around in a tuna can. It has a lot of good pickup but still has good fuel economy. It has good traction in the rain or snow. I have never had any problem with it in bad weather. One thing I don't like is the seat. They are cloth and wish they were a little more comfortable.
Story
One memory that I love is after my nephew had graduated from the University of Dayton. Our whole family was there and we were all going to a restaurant afterwards to celebrate his graduation. My car fit five people comfortably, and we all followed each other to the restaurant. We were in high spirits, the sun roof open with June sunshine flooding in, great music on my awesome stereo and no pro... (more)
Pros
I love the car stereo, and the steering wheel features lets you easily adjust the radio. One really great feature is the back seats fold down, and you can remove the divider in the hatch area. This provides a huge amount of space for storage or for moving things. I also love the sunroof. You can open it all the way, or you can open it like a vent and get lots of fresh air. I also love how solid it feels when you are driving or riding in it. You don't feel every bump in the road and hear every road noise.
Cons
One negative thing is parts of it are plastic, and it sits lower to the ground. I bumped a parking lot bumper that was covered with snow, and it pulled the whole plastic part off. And, as I mentioned earlier, I wish the seats were a little more comfortable. They are cloth, but the seats are rather hard.
