I purchased this vehicle used at a car auction. The first thing I liked about the vehicle was its price. I was able to win it for four thousand. There were a few repairs that had to be made, but after everything that needed to be fixed was fixed, my total cost was six thousand. A dislike for this car is its look. I do not like hatchback vehicles. Another dislike is the audio system that came instilled with the car. The CD player had to be replaced, since there was not one in it. That could have been due to it being auctioned.
Story
There is a piece of road that quickly goes up than down. It always felt like I was going on a roller coaster ride.
Pros
A pro for this car would have to be its tank size. It holds 13.2 gallons and a nice feature is that the gas light becomes lit when there is two gallons left instead of one. Another pro is trunk space. Large space for day-to-day use. If I need more space, the back seats fold down. Another pro is that it doesn't use synthetic oil. So when I have to get an oil change, I'm only paying 25 dollars instead of 80 dollars.
Cons
A con for this vehicle is its acceleration. Don't know if it has always been like that or because I got it at an auction, but its acceleration has always been a problem. It does not take hills very well if I have to start at low speeds. Another con was the driver side seat belt did not stretch like any of the other seat belts.

I love this car. The white paint looks fantastic on it with its black rims. I use it a lot to go up to my parents' ranch in Southern California, and it performs just fine on the dirt roads. For the size and style, it gets pretty good gas mileage too. The interior is very comfortable. It fits my wife and two children very nicely, and can hold a decent amount in the trunk and back with the seats down whether it's groceries or furniture. Unfortunately, I have had an issue with one of the rear wheels though. One wears down much faster than the other for some reason and it's cost me a lot to repair. For the trouble I've had to put into that I wish the car had cost less up front. However, it is very fun to drive. It accelerates quickly and brakes easily. I feel like I have a lot of control a...

I taught my best friend to drive in this car in the parking lot of our old high school. He was a natural.

They always provide great service. The prices are reasonable. The mechanics do a great job. They guarantee their work. They are always able to answer any questions that I may have. They will call to check up on my car, if it's been awhile since I have been in for service. They always remind me when it's time to service my vehicle.

I was able to shop online for my car, and did all the price negotiating in this manner. Once I found a car that matched the price I was willing to pay, it was a simple matter of going to the dealership, signing the contracts, and driving home in my new car. It was a very pleasant and easy experience.
