Needed a safe mid-size car that got great mileage. Mostly used for commuting but will carry the family on the weekends. I have over 8,000 miles on it and it has never gotten under 27 mpg. My commute is 50/50 freeway/city streets so I am very happy with the mileage. It is a very quiet car and the 4 cylinder never has me wanting more. The chasis is very european in its ride qualities with a taunt ride. This car does everything that I need of it well.
Simple control layout. Ride. Room. Trunk space. MPG.
Could use the new 6 speed transmission with the 4 cylinder Ecotec. Electric steering too artificial.
