The car is an excellent mixture of performance and comfort. Build quality is quite high and any problems - only minor - have been addressed without question by any of the dealerships we have used. Despite the rear wheel drive, this car has never had issues with snow or rain driving no matter how icy or snowy our alley side garage has become. The interior is smart and functional while the exterior is still one of the best looking around with elements appearing in many other cars.
Great brakes and handling. Power is good, but not over the top. The 5 speed is very handy and gets the most out of the engine.
More steering feedback (as in previous model). Improved audio system and some additional engine power to compete with latest Japanese entries.
