Handles great, steering is snappy and sharp, (some say clunky, but for a spirited driver, its perfect). Combined with 4 doors and a large trunk, it's sporty and versatile. Opted for the silverstone metallic with black leather, sharp! Great stereo, firm but comfy seats with heaters. XM and OnStar are great. 303hp doesn't hurt either. Have scared a lot of tuners on the line when the 5.3L makes the tires scream (just remember to turn off the traction control). And it even runs on regular 87 octane! (Tell that to your Charger owners!)
The engine. Smooth transmission and active fuel management system is seamless. Sunroof, stereo (Bose), remote start for the winters.
More lateral bolstering in the seats. Hard turns at speed make you feel loose in the seat and want to prop your leg against the kick panel for support. My '70 Firebird is the same way.
