|Zippy, cute - retrodetailing in & out = everyone who sees me stops me to see it||Leakage issue in a brand new car|
|Driving dynamics- car handles beautifully and is a blast to drive!||Wish i had steering wheel radio controls & armrest|
|Engine/ transmission- turbo engine and manual transmission make it so fun!||Entry ease- can be tight to get in for middle aged male|
|Excellent engine preformance - quick acceleration, but very good mpg also.||Lack of power adjustable front seats|
|Quick, confidence-inspiring handling and traction control system||No sunroof - have to open both windows, otherwise ear issues|
|Style - unique looking - funny, fun, different||Simplify how to fold front seat down so someone can get in the back|
|Great space for the trunk and 2nd row seats||Disappointed in mpg - gas tank difficult to fill|
|For the size of the car the trunk space is exceptionally roomy.||Doors - unless opened full it falls back to shut position|
|Personalization of color changing lights within vehicle||Came with continental tires which are terrible in snow & rain.|
|The new style interior & exterior - looks sporty||Cruise control- when it loses speed, a definite surge to get back up|
