|Comfort, interior space, ease of ride||Access to trunk space: trunk hatch is undersized somewhat|
|Mileage. i was trying to buy a car not a radio.||Reduced visibility by windshield post when making turns|
|The amazing power developed by the 4 cylinder engine||On star on steering wheel gets pressed to often by accident|
|Looks as good as, or better than higher priced cars.||6 speed auto transmission works well but mpg is not as good as cobalt|
|Ease of getting in and out of seats. comfort of seats||Seat belts are hard to buckle|
|Engine has lots of snap, gets into traffic quickly||Visibility at 2, 5, 7 & 10 o clock|
|Paint - excellent paint color - granite||Difficult for elderly to get in and out|
|Handling, it handles well on curvy roads||Controls for driver seat adjustment|
|I like the overall attractiveness of the exterior||Transmission - takes some getting used to|
|Front wheel drive, good in snow||Car sits too low to ground|
