Purchased As New
just bought this car, 2012 model, its soo much fun, i cant wait till i get my first 1000 miles, and finsh the break in, so i can use the manual shift mode more aggressively. and whats great about the manual transmission mode, other than its fun to shift, is that it automatically downshifts for you. And this really is a clutchless manual tranny, because the manual states that you should always use the parking break, like a manual, and says, the Park gear setting should always be used with the parking brake handle pulled.
this car is soo well put together, the interior is such high quality, even in my base Pure model, there is a cloth dash board, cloth door panels, and a Matte finish Carbon Fiber Roof and the fact that the body panels are plastic, and easily replacable is great, i dont worry about door dings messing up the car, long term, just buy a replacement panel.
and the first maint interval is at 10k miles, no break in oil change.
and what the idiot reviewers, that never rode in the car, and know nothing on here keep saying, bad gas mileage, soo untrue, i get close to 40, and i am still under 1k miles,
and the crash tests are 4&5 stars, and many air bags, head, throat, knee....
and i am soo happy i got the optional Factory Cruise control, its great. ( one note: i wanted the white color, but found out that they cant add the Factory Cruise Control once its delivered to the dealership, so i bought the Red color that had Factory Cruise built into the steering wheel, and Cruise comes with an upgraded Trip computer, with average mileage, and instant mileage, and i can get all new body panels of any color for under 1400.00 bucks for a complete set down the road,
and wow, the accsseories available aftermarket are soo numerous and varied.
this such a fun car.... i looked at the nisan Versa and other cars near this price, and None got the same gas mileage, the versa gets only 36, i drive a new prius as my work car, and i use it on the highway alot, my Smart car gets better hiway mileage. and is half the price,
this car is soo fun, and unique, and looks soo much better than the 4 door cars in this price range. ( i,looked at the ford mazda, and honda, base models, with cruise comtrol, they all cost much more than my Smart Car.
i luv this car !
(They should delete reviews from people that dont own the car, and give it poor reviews. boo. )
