Pros: great gas mileage
Cons: very compactgreat car for the price
Not worth the money
Pros: The cargo space
Cons: ReliabilityI bought my Maxx used and have had nothing but problems from the moment I drove it off the lot. The ignition system fails to start the vehicle at some very inopportune moments due to an interlock with the security system that won't allow ignition. And there is a popping noise in the steering column that no one can find.
great work vehicle
Pros: The hatchback and roominess of the trunk
Cons: not comfortable after about 3 or 4 hrs drivingGreat vehicle for commuting. Great gas mileage. Easy to maneuver and run errands in because of the small size.
Pros: the cute dashboard. All around cute in appearance
Cons: Unreliable...there is also no engine power.
Advice: Drive the heck out of it because it might fail before you are allowed to exchange it within 30 days....drive it a lot to find out if it is worth buying.I just purchased this car and owned it for 10 days. It does not get the suggested gas mileage as promised from the manufacturer. It promises 32 hwy and 26 city and yet I never once got the AVERAGE above 24????? On the 10th day I drove it home in a snow storm after a long day with friends and all of a sudden the check engine light popped on and the vehicle de-celerated down to 20mph while travelling down a busy four lane hwy. I pulled over into a residential neighborhood and called a tow. the car would not travel faster than 5 mph even with the gas pedal floored. Meanwhile, as I sat waiting in blizzard conditions in the lovely Minnesota winter the heater wouldn't work properly. When I turned the heat on the steering wheel shimmied and the engine started dying. I am on my way to go shopping for a different car.
Advice: Save yourself some money and get one..about 5I just love this little car..with inside room that belies it's small footprint. Smooth ride and great stero sound...I was suprized at the fit and finish of the car and the low level of road noise.It's cheap so get the full package of features..and you can't go wrong...They made it a little wider and made the ride great.
