It has great acceleration and hugs the road very well. The suspension is stiff and reminds me of my old RSX-S (could be good or bad depending on the driver). I've driven from TX to CA in this and was not fatigued. All in all, it is a pleasure to drive. I do extensive research whenever I buy pretty much anything and I found this to be a better buy than the competitors.
Drives like a sporty car with more room. Sound system and 5.1 DVD audio are impressive (although there is a lack of DVD audio discs). The navigation system is something I cannot live without now. Nothing on the vehicle looks or feels "cheap". High safety rating.
Better fuel economy (biggest gripe), power rear door (would be nice), power passenger seat (minor). I've had 3 adults in the back seat and I was given the impression that it was not as comfortable as it could be.
