I bought this car for a daily 132 mile round trip commute. This car was on my short list because it is one of few in the category that I can fit into easily - 6'2" and 210 pounds.
I average 36 mpg overall - a little worse in the summer running AC all the time.
Comfort is acceptable for a 2 hour commute.
Leather and heated seats are pluses for comfort in winter. I do not like SYNC as it does not work with my cellphone.
I have had only 1 warranty repair - a head gasket at about 80K miles.
At 4 plus years the car looks and drives like new.
It is no beauty, but I can live with it for the long run.
Mileage, heated seats, headroom, reliability
SYNC stinks, better road noise isolation, upgrade sound system
