I bought my 2009 sxt (2.7l v^) in November of 2008 and love it to death! Solid construction; beautiful design; fast performance; overall, it's great! Just because it's not an import is no reason for car & driver and Edmund's to slam it. They rank it low on "fun to drive, " and they either didn't drive one or are stupid! This car is a blast!
