I bought a 2011 model new as a daily driver. Never had any problems with it other than the recall on rough start/idle. Once fixed it ran fine for years. Being 6 foot and thin, I fit just fine. IMO it is a cool looking car, great for zipping around town and easy to park. My main gripe is that I wish it had a stronger engine. Sport mode gives it a little extra “ooommmph” of the line if I’m alone in the car, but with passengers or a car full of stuff I didn’t really notice it. Other than that brief initial acceleration, the 0-60 is the same as normal mode. The engine was also loud when stepping on it. I haven’t seen many other in the field that sported the upgraded LED headlights. They had the full daytime running LED strip at the bottom rather than the “missing tooth” that the regular HID ones have. The LED output at night was noticeably whiter/brighter than the standard HID…for what it’s worth. J The radio/speakers never really bothered me. They were ok.
I really liked the thing but sold it a year ago because having a carseat would basically not allow an adult to sit in the front passenger seat….otherwise I may still have it.
