I absolutely love it.

by Memawx3 from Tacoma, Washington | January 12, 2020

This car is a blast to drive. It also gets great gas mileage, averages about 43 mpg! Very easy to park any place and is just a little bit stylish without being a teenager kind of style. Would not hesitate to but a another one. The price was fantastic, I paid 11,989 and got free oil changes for life and 100,000 Mike warranty bumper to bumper.

Multiple electrical problems after only a year

by Jenmc from Alexandria VA | November 15, 2019

Acceleration issues (slow to pick up after starting), beeps at me when it’s cold. Radio screen completely died after 1 year of use and I’m having a lot of other problems such as: car dying/locking me out from starting it randomly, interior controls not working, lights on the dash that are inaccurate, etc... it seems there’s a major electrical or control board issue on a car that’s only a year old. 11K miles. Sure it’s under warranty and covered but I’ve wasted so much of my time on this stupid car!
