I purchased the STS-V in late June 2007. The car has performed extraordinarily well. I do a fair amount of driving on back roads and the handling of this vehicle is superb around bends and winding roads. There have been no squeaks or rattles. The car is tightly built. Gas mileage is similar to a large SUV. I am getting around 15 mpg around town which is slightly better than the rated mileage. One aspect of the car that you don't fully appreciate during the test drive is how well the driver seat holds the driver in place during cornering. The seat design is superior to that of most cars in this class. Mechanically, the engine and transmission operate very smoothly.
