Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Having only owned it two months and over 6000 miles, overall I like the car except: The interior is a concern as to whether or not some of the material, especially on the doors, will hold up for the four years I owe on the car. The cup holders are the worst-both too wide-my morning gas station coffee cup slides around, and too deep. Other than that and the mystery material on the floor, so far so good. I shouldn't complain because it only cost $21,000 and averages 29 mpg.
