- a lot of car for the money
- seats a little uncomfortable
Bought new, I like this car, I get 21 mpg so far but I have only put 500 miles on it so far. I have owned a few new cars over the years and I have to say this one is pretty nice, has many standard features you pay big bucks for in other cars, ie, 4 wheel anti lock disk brakes, front & side air bags, great warranty. Could be improved as far as comfort goes, seats are cheap but overall a good buy, I have paid more and gotten less...read morehide

- Inexpensive vehicle and that is also what you will get
- Fuel economy in city driving is unacceptable at 13 to 15 MPG , better off buying a tank
Definitely a Do Not Buy. Fuel economy in actual city driving is unacceptable for a vehicle of this class (Small Economy Car/Wagon).
If this car had been made in the 1970's era it would be bad but today it is a DO NOT BUY...

- Excellent value for the money, tons of standard equipment, smooth styling, Wagon/Small "SUV" Utility
- Some of the interior upholstery is not appealing, Automatic gear shift takes getting used to
This car is one of the few true "wagons" on the market today offered with a 4-cylinder engine, 30mpg highway, and a low entry price. People who feel they need the utility of an SUV, and feel that a hatchback is too small, but never go off-road in their car-based "cute utes" should consider this as a viable, practical alternative.
The styling was penned in Italy, and the interior looks great, with much nicer looking materials than you'd expect in such a "cheap" car.
The fuel economy could be better, but when weighing the total cost of owning a vehicle like this, combined fuel economy of around 25 miles per gallon is generous for a vehicle that offers wagon utility. In trips I have seen it get 32 mpg or so.
The cargo area is larger than most popular so-called wagons or hatchbacks like the PT Cruiser or the Toyota Matrix. The layout is much like the 4 and 6 cylinder station wagons of the 1980's, and if you want something like that again your choices are limited to this wagon and perhaps a Ford Focus wagon.
Compare the equipment and price and I think you'll find the Forenza wagon stacks up better in the end than a lot of the alternatives....read morehide
