I went on our first road trip. I was surprised at how quiet, comfortable, and efficient the car was. I didn't get tired driving at all. We averaged 33mpg going 70mph on the freeway. The 4 cylinder isn't like a V6, but it is very adequate. When I had to pass it had no problem getting up to speed. The only thing is that I'm 6' and I have to lower the seat to have adequate head room. I love the sync.
