This is a cheap car with great gas mileage, so you should expect a smaller engine and not-so-perfect engineering. I agree with the other reviews that this car has some serious weight balance issues and a small engine. However if I wanted a cramped sports car I would have stayed with my old BMW. The front tires almost always look under inflated due to the extreme weight on them but it makes for amazing traction (also due to its lack of torque). This isn't a great car for stop light duels but if you keep it at 65 on the highway expect prius-ish mpg! I have gotten well near 40 mpg on the highway and even higher the slower I go. I routinely go over 300 miles one one tank of gas (at normal highway speeds), no problem! Also, as far as trunk space goes I can fit four normal packing boxes in the trunk alone! Not to mention if I use my huge back seat... you know the kind of back seat that you can actually invite normal sized friends to sit in. Never buy a car that you can't fit in all the seats yourself! I made that mistake with my old Altima coupe!
P.S.~ I should mention that I have had this car for over a year now and put over 12K miles on it. Not a single issue, not even a brake pad or new tire! (did run over a nail and had them patch it though)
