I love this car, a bit expensive for non-warranty items (expected). Drives VERY well. Acceleration, handling, and braking are the best I have found so far. Got this car at a bargain price, and paid the price for some needed repairs, but since being brought back to specs it has delivered respectable and dependable sevice. Fuel mileage has amazed me in that when driven sanely I average 21-22 in town and 26- 27 on the highway ... all that in a car that will do over 155 mph if you wish.
Acceleration is exceptional. Corners very well for a fairly large car and comes to a stop quickly. The sport package delivers 6-way power seats that are in the uppoer level comfort range.
Cup holders (not intended for the autobahn) are poorly designed and break too easily.
