I bought my base model last spring after researching luxury sedans for months.
I got a great deal ($29,500 and 0% interest for 60 months) and I couldn't be happier.
The car looks and feels like an expensive luxury sedan and yet I paid the same as an average mid-size sedan.
I went with the base to save $4K over the tech package, how loud of a radio does a 50 year old need anyway?
I have my own GPS and it has bluetooth and an aux hookup for my iPod already.
Handling is good but not great, wallows a bit due to the size of the car I guess.
The gas mileage has been the biggest surprise...averaging 27 mpg in mixed driving and even got 33 on a 1400 mile road trip.
Interior is awesome...feels very high end.
I like the trip computer information.
Better tires on the base model...the Bridgestones are OK but why not just give every model the Michelins?
