I had not bought an American car since the late 1980s and was afraid to try it again. But this car was such a looker, drove so well and was priced so attractively that I couldn't turn it up. I have been very happy with the car, with the exception of the gas mileage. I do a mix of about half city/half highway driving and I manage to average 15-16 mpg. On the freeway I get 21-23 mpg depending on road/weather conditions. I think the car could probably benefit from a slightly larger wheel size but as that would only decrease MPG I am happy enough with what it came with.
Interior build quality, fit/finish surprisingly good. Great stereo and navigation system, comfortable front seats.
Cruise control that does not rev/accelerate as hard. Ventilated front seats to cut down air conditioning usage and thus improve MPG. Engine that switches to 4 cylinders in highway cruising to improve MPG.
