Purchased As New
After more than 16,000 miles on the car for just 5 months, I can honestly say that I love driving a small hybrid. Forget the so-called experts saying how poorly this car performs in going up hill. I live in the Rockies and I can go up the summits on I-70 faster than my 2008 Subaru Forester. I also do mostly highway driving and the car never disappoint. I can go as fast as 90+ miles. My top speed was about 95 mph and I couldn't hear much more noise than I expect from other small cars. I also got about 51+ MPG for 80% highway driving. When I drive in the city, I actually get more than 56 MPG. I am a very defensive driver, however. I can also see how one would get the stated average.
As for the cargo space, the most I carried inside my car is kiteboarding equipment for two person, camping gears for 2 person and 4 adults in the car at the same time! The two Russian girls did have to get real close to each other, however. ;-)
I think this is a great car for anyone living in the city. Even for someone who is as outdoorsy as I am, it is not a bad choice either. I already saved more than $1300 in gas money. I can see the car being completely paid for if i do keep it until 250,000 miles.
