The car has good pickup and the engine is smooth. I have to look at the tachometer to make sure the idling engine is running. It is a comfortable car and my last two cars were a 1997 Cadillac and a 2001 Olds Aurora. City driving yields 18-19 mpg...may get better. I have not had it on an extended highway trip but expect to get 30 mpg. Have had no problems the first four months.
I like the rear parking assist which I never had before.
Folding mirrors would be nice. Placing the temperature controls higher on the dash would allow you to operate the controls without taking your eyes off the road. Change the grille...it looks too much like the old Buicks.
