It is a solid car, but there is really nothing special. It has an average amount of power, an average engine note, average handling, average interior, and a subpar exterior. When it came out in 2009, it was at or near the top of its class, but almost 4 years later, several other cars have come out that are better. Those cars include the Dodge Dart, Toyota Carolla and Mazda 3. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad car, just an average one.
