This is a co. car-leased-I wouldn't buy
it for myself. Drivetrain is smooth and
powerful enuf-get about 23MPG combined
c/hghwy. Handling is adequate with Gr.
Sprt. suspension and 16" tires-the
stock suspension and 15"rs must be
awfully bad. Ride is good and very
quiet on hghwy-just don't take turns
too aggresively. Interior layout is
good, though 1980's cruise location on
left stalk behind steering wheel is old-
tech. Leather seats have zero lumbar
support-had to purchase aftermarket
device to add to seat to save my back!
Depreciation on this car is brutal,
too. Advice-take your $27K and get an
Accord or Camry!
Dual-zone auto climate, quiet ride,
heated seats, relatively good fuel
Put cruise on steering wheel, tighten
up exterior panel gaps (the one between
the trunk and rear quarters is huge!),
redesign exterior (LaCrosse is coming,
I hear), redesign seat ergonomics or
