So far, (15,000 miles) this has been a good car. Getting a combined 35.6 mpg and there's plenty of cargo room. Interior engine noise is a little louder than I would like, and acceleration isn't going to wow anyone, but handling is excellent, easy to park, and nice interior. Would buy this same car again.
Took my 3 year old car in for servicing, oil change, etc., and was told my parking brake needed adjusting. I use it every day because I park on an incline, so I figured they might be telling me the truth. They charged me 50 bucks for this. Did I get ripped off?
After they adjusted it I noticed the parking brake was noticeably tighter, and I didn't have to press it down as far when I set it. I think it sets with around 5 or six clicks, whereas before it set with more than 7.
