So far the car has been a blast to drive. The 5 speed manual trans is smooth and the clutch is very responsive. road noise is a thing of the past so far, and I love the responsivness of the suspension and steering.
SYNC hands down. I love no having to take my eyes off the road when someone is calling or when im trying to change the song on the radio.
Visibility is poor out of the back window and the turn signal / wiper controls are a little high up on the steering column.
