ReviewI test drove everything under $32K that was midsized. Some were quicker (G35), quieter (Camry), handled better (used 528), more passionate (Passat), but none put it all together for $26K. This car is loaded for $26K! And it's quiet, quick, comfortable, nice looking, and well built. And, despite magazine reviews, I find it fun to drive considering it is a family car. It has better 50-70 acceleration than the G35, according to some test sources, so it moves quite well. And, it's front wheel drive, which is good in the snow (5 months/year in upstate NY). Keep in mind, this is not a BMW or BMW wannabe, and it's not $40k like a BMW 530, either.
Best FeaturesBuild quality, interior, comfort level, price, feature level, 240 hp through a 5 speed automatic.
Worst FeaturesHeated sideview mirrors (the Canadians get it), auto-dimming rearview mirror, longer warranty (if Kia can offer a 10 year warranty on a crud car, Honda and other makes should be able to do better than 3 yrs/36K miles on a well built car).
