Great when purchased, great now.

This has been an excellent car. Snows/winter wheels essential, and it is like a cat. Mostly problem free... new headlight washer pump(s?) and oxygen sensor, the latter fixed under emissions control warranty. Otherwise just routine maintenance. Performance suggest torque/hp ratings understated, as it feels fully as quick as the newer V8 models. Interior is of ultra high quality materials and design, and looks/feels as new after more than 6 years. Whole car is tight and performs as new. An absolute bargain at today's used car value, even putting aside $ for possible eventual repairs.
Power, especially at lowish rpm where most cars feel flat, classy interior, looks, size, handling, and solid quality feel throughout. Sound of trunk closing says it all. Rattle and squeak free.
For those who need it, a little more room in back seat. Gearing is lower than need be given the torque avaiable (but therefore even 6th gear responsiveness at 60 mph or more is phenomonal as a result).
