ReviewI echo everyones comments here, but I have one piece of advice to up your fuel consumption. As I'm from the UK but live in the USA and we have gas selling at almost $8 a gallon we have to find ways of driving to save or stretch gas as far as we can. So, first off, get a light foot. Second, don't race to the next set of lights if they are red. Third, Don't excelerate from a stop to fast, be gentle with the pedal, back off once you reach the speed you want. Forth, When you have a good hill to go down, knock the thing in to neutral and coast, slot it back into drive when you need to. Fifth, try to drive without using the brakes to much, braking costs energy. Last, use cruise, always, everywhere
Best FeaturesThat self dimming mirror :-) And the heated seats in winter, Mmmmm :-) I love the trim as it is, understated and classic.
Worst FeaturesBetter fog lamps maybe. Adjustable steering wheel for us long people. Fog lamps at the rear, like we do in europe and the UK, beats being hit in the rear cos' you can't be seen till it's to late. A storage place between the rear seats. A knob to un dim the dash lights, daytime driving, lights on.
