I've had this car for almost a year, and I love it. It has about 26,000 miles on it now. I've driven it mostly short distances, but have also driven long distances as well and it performs great. I even drove it during Snowmaggedon 2009 on the East Coast and the handling was excellent. I've never had any problems with anything the previous reviewers have mentioned. In fact, mechanics have complemented me on how good everything on the car looks! Absolutely no mechanical problems or issues with tire wear or alignment.
Fun to drive, love the Sync and stereo, comfortable ride, great gas mileage. No idea why people have an issue with the stereo, I think it's fine. If it's not loud enough, you have hearing problems.
You have to yank a little on the door handles, my mom always thinks the door is still locked because she has to pull so hard.
