What were your needs when you bought this car? Has it fulfilled those needs?

I needed a car that could take me on tramping trips and carry me and my large dog. But it needed to be economical.

What were your initial thoughts about the car? Tell us why it appealed to you.

I liked the fact that it was a hybrid and was economical. And in the colour Red, it definitely goes faster!!!

What have you discovered since owning the car?

Its a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. It is VERY economical and very nippy around the towns.

What do you like/dislike about the car?

I love how zippy it is and how I don't need to visit the pump that often. Really great to drive, reminds me of my old mini, but safer!!!

The air con is useless if you want the car to be economical or get up steep hills.

Unfortunately you have to buy a used import to get the hybrid version of this car. This means the navigation platform is in Japanese. However, you can plug your phone in and use that to navigate, play music etc.

Any other comments on the car?

Really ticks all my boxes.

Lastly, would you buy this vehicle again?

Yes

Why would/wouldn't you buy it again?

Its the perfect little run around for a single gal and her large ridgeback dog. And it doesn't cost much to run
