I leased the car in Dec07. I am now purchasing the car to buy. The only problem has been a drivers interior door handle that broke. (dealer had it in stock and fixed in a hour). The car has great acceleration, good brakes, and handles quite well. 20k and no other problems. I drive mostly city and the mileage could be better, but it does well on the highway w/ 6 spd auto.
The trunk space is amazing! I have put full size doors in the trunk w/back seats down. coach baseball can fit tons of equipment in the trunk. Audiophile 6 cd Stereo sounds great! comfortable ride, a pleasure to drive.
Any suggestions have pretty much been addressed in the 2010 models. If you are looking at the sport appearance model w/18" wheels, the stock tires are poor in the snow.
