The only 2 cupholders thing does suck but overall I really enjoy driving this car and I hope it continues to age well as the miles pile up but right now we are only at 6000 in the 8 months we've had it and so far so good.
Maybe a little more rattles than I'd expect for a new car (my 4Runner rattled less at 100k miles) but the handling is great for cheap car and the fun factor has been high and can't complain about the 27mpgs around town considering all the short trips and very little hwy driving.
