I really wanted something that had some get-up-and-go and was fun to drive in the mountains. This really fills the bill. Yes, the ride is stiff, but it's nearly as much fun to drive as my wife's Mini Cooper, which is saying a lot. In addition, it's got one of the best sound systems I've heard. Don't worry about the road noise.
The seats are really comfortable and the navigation system will take you just about anywhere.
