ReviewBeautiful car that is so good that it's faults stand out more than they otherwise would. I love a big ride, but this one is so large that Parktronic should be standard... almost impossible to park in tight quarters without it (or without playing bumper cars). DO NOT BUY WITHOUT IT, despite its over-sensativity or your assumption that you can park a car without a computer (that's me!)
Best FeaturesGreat looking inside and out without the "look at me" consumer appeal of BMW or MB. Ultralux, ultra-comfortable, especially with the Alcantara interior upgrade. Basically performs as you would expect from $75k.
Worst FeaturesAs magazines said, suspension could be better over high speed bumps--you get annoying reverberation (18" wheels). Throttle too sensative starting from zero. Steering wheel should control user-stations, not the car-selected ones. Parktronic should not "alarm" unless close (1 foot).
