I guess I will be the first to offer comments after 5k miles and nearly 6months of ownership. Thus far there haven't been any real issues. The only "problem" I have is that the horn doesnt sound when the doors are locked even though I have that setting selected in the DIC. I haven't been back to the dealer yet. The ride and handling are excellent as is the build quality on this car. Love the H/K stereo and the excellent MP3 integration. I really thought I was going to miss the lack of CD changer but with so many other options its no big deal. The backseat is tight for adults but OK for kids. The styling garners lots of compliments from strangers- even people in traffic. People love the looks
Handling, ride quality, interior lighting, traction in snow, HK stereo, trip computer, turn by turn direction capability, materials, seat comfort, transmission performance, trunk shape, brakes.
Remote start needs to be added, backseat is just adequate, better wheel design, mileage is mediocre.
