I received this as a Christmas present from my Dad this past Christmas. I'm 18 and this was a huge upgrade from my grandma's 1994 Ford Tempo I was driving around. All I can say is wow. It has a good amount of power and the brakes are fantastic. I drive it pretty hard, but I still get about 26-28 mpg doing a mix of city and highway driving. It's hard to explain, but the car just feels "solid". The doors close with a dull thud, instead of a hollow bang. Even things like the turn signal lever feel well built. The steering is tight and easy to maneuver, even at high speeds. The ride is overall excellent.
SYNC - by far is my favorite feature. If you don't get it, you are really missing out. It works flawlessly. Also I love the ambient lighting, leather steering wheel, steering wheel controls, dimming rear view mirror, and awesome dashboard lights.
There is NO backseat lighting at all, cloth seats seem like they collect a lot of hair and dirt
