Pros: great handling, styling
Cons: tight in back seat, fairly tight in front for a large man
After owning the car for approximately one year, other items need adjusting and correction. Keep in mind that two recall notices have already been sent to owners the latest being a half day lost at the dealers for a ball joint problem on the front end. For a smoker, the ashtray is almost impossible to empty when the car is in park. The only way to empty the ashtray, is to start the car, bring the shift lever to neutral, and empty the ashtray. This is dangerous, as it is easy to engage the shift into a drive position because of the position of the ashtray. Human value engineering needs to be applied to this posthaste.
Another problem I have encountered is the lack of visibility through the rear window for obstructions below the level of the window. I recently backed into a three foot stationary pole because I couldn't see it. The result was a $500 repair bill. This could easily be fixed by installing a small device that alerts you of any obstructions in the back of the car when backing up. Other cars have this device in use already.
