Purchased As New
This car caught my eye the first second i saw it. I HAD to test drive one. And let me tell you, it was a blast! With a computer controled engine you can change the settings with the push of a button. You can choose between normal, sport and economy.
With sport you get crazy acceleration and the authentic feel of it shifting between gears, also the handling is tightened up for those risky corners. With economy it pretty much destroys your acceleration but you helps out on gas a little. And normal is a nice mix of both as you still get some umpf with your acceleration but not the crazy amount you would get in sport mode.
Also when you the gas pedal be prepared to GO, mulitple times i just pressed the gas pedal like i had in my previous vehicles and whoa, took me by surprise the amount of get up and go this machine has.
I bought the fully loaded model and really enjoy the nice backup camera and gps navigation system as well as the upgraded audio system with 8 inch subwoofer in the back. I have had it just about a month now and twice i have went to restaurants to eat and i get people coming up to me in the parking lot asking me about it and wanting to look it over.
The only real minuses i have found with it are that it is rather small. If you are single or if you have no children then this car will be great for you. As for me i do have a baby and the car seat does fit in the back but it is a very tight fit. Same with hauling the stroller in the back. It fits but just barely. Also the gas mileage is not anything close to what they advertise. And believe me i have tried to just drive on the eco setting to get that, but it kills the acceleration so much that it is rather dangerous to pull out into traffic with that setting on if you are not expecting it not to go.
I live in a bigger city so it may just be my location. I would think smaller rural areas might not have as big of a problem with the eco mode that i have.
