Some Practical Advice

ReviewGreat car, solidly built, nimble at high
speeds. Monstrous brakes and the
Stability system has saved me more than
once - getting itself out of an
understeer. There is only one real
weakness - the tires. Once I upgraded
the tires (wait for them to go on sale,
$150s per tire every now and then,
though i paid the full 200) i could not
have been happier. Now I don't need to
endanger all of my neighbors and
strangers by driving a
car-crash-incompatible SUV and menacing
the roads in general. Last winter (a
doozy of one on the East Coast), I drove
364 out of 365 days and that the vast
majority of rolled-over and road-side
crashed cars were trucks like the
Explorer and Blazer.
Best FeaturesGreat looks, nice but not overstated or wacky (like the new Beemers). Very very solid car.
Worst Featurestrunk CD changers: annoying cupholders: cruel German joke TIRES: The original Dunlops slipped and fished. I now have Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires, and the difference is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Astounding improvement in wet and snow handling, quieter ride.
