This is my wife's car. When I drive it my head scrapes the headliner (I'm 6'0") so maybe not a great car for a tall person. Then again it has a sunroof and that robs some headroom. This car is a blast to drive. It corners like it's on rails and always has plenty of power on tap. Still turns heads too. Despite the head room thing it is otherwise comfortable for road trips. Reliability has been top notch and good fuel economy. If you are looking for a true drivers' car without having to shell out big bucks, look no further.
Chassis, suspension, motor, ability to program the steering wheel buttons, quality of the leather seats.
Brakes are good but could be better. Interior is plasticky, no MP3 connection. I think all these were addressed with the new '08 model.
