Purchased As New
I brought this hatchback almost a month, and I drove it 3000 miles in the central and southern texas. The 40 mile/gallon I have to say if you keep your speed around 60 and drive on a flat surface, you can. I got average 34.6 local and high way combined, but my old 96 tercel did achieve 40 before. This car from 0 to 30 feels quick, but from 30 to 60 a kind of lagging, so for me the 1st and 2nd gear is good, but the 3rd and 4th, especially 5th gear is slow, and i don't have very much confidence on the freeway passing, i always put in manual mode and downshift to the 4th. High way feeling just a little bit noisy, but its ok. The car stablizes itself good, I barely feel wobbling even on high speed(Texas speed). The brake is a bit soft, but it stops. The bluetooth cannot recognize multiple phones, so every time you have to re-configure if other people connected before, and the bluetooth quality is good. Anyway, this car isn't a sporty car, everyday driving won't bore you and you can save a little bit on gas money too. I didn't have a chance drive in the rainy day, but I guess tires are more important.
