- Very fun to drive w/ 5 spd man. Looks great. Fuel econ v good when you drive at or below 3000 rpm.
- not great in snow.
Love the car. Flawless fit, trim, and workmanship. Not a single issue in over 9,000 miles. Handling is great and very responsive. 5 speed is smooth with a very easy clutch. Fuel economy is in range of 28-31 which for me is primarily freeway. If you keep it at or below 3000 rpm's you get the best mileage.
Only klitch is the handling in snow. Not great at all. The car comes with mud and snow Goodyears (17 inch). You wouldn't know it as it is not very sure footed in snowy conditions. Truthfully, I only drove it in one snow storm so far....but the impression was not good on me.
Trunk space in the 5 - door is limited.....but I didn't buy this car to haul things. I have a Honda Pilot for that.
