The car drives and handles very well. I have gotten as high as 37 mpg with the V6 and average around 29-32 for all around driving. The power is more than enough for accelerating and passing. Not far behind the V-6 Altima I had. The only complaint is the knocking coming from the steering area. They said it's a problem with the collapsable steering column and is a cosmetic thing. But it will cost $200-300 to fix.
Gas mileage, acceleration, and ride. Took it on a 3000 mile trip and found it very comfortable. Great value for the dollar.
Front seats could be a little wider for men. I'm broad thru the shoulders and the seat is a little narrow. Interior has no pizazz at all.
