This car has been remarkably trouble- free over the past 34 months. Performance is quite good and ride is firm but compliant. Front seats, however, in no way compare to the Mercedes-based ones in my previous Chrysler Crossfire. Replaced the front brake pads, etc. at 26,000 due to mainly mixed suburban driving. Biggest warranty repairs have been the replacement of a piece of interior trim in the rear seat area and replacement of the entire radio/CD player/information center due to a fault in the CD portion. In both cases loaner vehicles were provided and work was done on-time with no hassles.
Smooth, flexible powertrain with manual select capability. Really am quite fond of the XM radio capability to the point where it's now a requirement going forward.
Not sure I would have sprung for the 18" wheels if I had it to do over. My wife would have appreciated the car more if it "rode more like her father's Cadillac".
