Great car on the highway. Very quiet. The driving around town in moderate traffic can cause frustration with the lack of response when the gas peddle is depressed while traveling at speeds in the 25-35 mph range. Sometimes depending on the gear you are in you may not get much of a response initially unless you really press hard. Sometimes it will downshift and the rpms can shoot to over 5000 when all you wanted to do was go around a slightly slower car. Can be difficult at times.
The transmission spoils the ride enjoyment for this vehicle. It is always trying to upshift as soon as possible for fuel economy. This will sometimes leave you in gear that provides for little if any acceleration unless you mash the gas peddle and then it down shifts too far with huge jump in rpm
