Better than my 2000 LS. Engine power superior, body design more pricey looking. Ride is solid, brakes and steering solid. Great buy at discount rate with many god standard features. 16 inch wheels a plus and must. I'd recommend this car in the LS or LT versions. Driver visor mirror lid broke, redesign in the works, still waiting.
Engine power excellent, transmission solid. Roomy interior, exterior body design and lines nice. Remote start and auto climate controls are great. Adjustable brake and gas pedals are terrific.
The only complaint I have is the lack of a "traditional" tilt steering wheel. The current design makes it tight getting in and out as my legs don't have clearance between the wheel and seat unless I drop the seat to the floor. OK for my wife but a terrible flaw for me. Once in the car I enjoy it.
