Road noise on coarse pavement at highway
speeds is deafening, making conversation
or radio-listening an unpleasant chore.
Engine noise is pronounced during
moderate-to-hard acceleration, and the
motor does not sing a sweet song.
Intermittent rattles and squeaks are
annoying. The car is dead-solid
reliable, but I won't buy another one.
