Pros: styling, grace, PRICE, entrance&exiting, EXTREME HEADROOM
Cons: REALLY small space behind the back seat for cargo when hauling people
Advice: take the dealer invioce price and work from there, don't start at the price they tell youit picked up speed like none other, though it did make some odd noises. handles very well. it didn't have cruise but that can be adder on later, dealer installed. along with fog lamps, something needed for my driving. i enjoyed the vehicle and plan to go make it my final purchase within the week.
Pros: Selling it a year and a half later with only 15,000 miles and getting $2,500.
Cons: The strange noises it made all the time.
Advice: Life is short, so don't waist your time.I purchased this car for a cheap car to get back and forth from work, but it spent about a total of three months in the shop over a year and a half. Every day it seemed to get loader and the wind noise drove me slowy insaine. If you care little about your time and even less about comfort I have found the car for you.
Pros: The hatch and the available features with the roof rack. The colour, Rally Blue
Cons: The automatic
Advice: Get the Rio Cinco. Small car with loads of room.I wasn't too thrilled with the automatic. It had no power. The 5 speed has excellent power and great control.
Pros: Sitting higher in the drive seat than most vehicles
Cons: drive seat belt buckle needs to be further out, or more flexible for comfort.
Advice: Do it ! It's a great car.Wonderful, Not a whole lot of power. But with downshifting, it has all the power of my old vehicle. A little learning and technique is all it takes !
