Review
I purchased this car at the end of the '05 model year when my dealer was offering "employee pricing". I considered the hybrid and a new '06 non-hybrid since they were the same price. I gave up the larger wheels, moon roof and revised exterior trim for the promise of better fuel mileage. I felt a bit cheated for the first months until the EPA released its test results from its new (more realistic) testing method. The technology works seamlessly together, with no indication of the battery or 3 cylinder modes engaging/disengaging. The auto stop is the only item that takes a few days to get used to. When you are rolling to a stop the engine shuts off while the car is still moving.
Favorite Features
The comfort and fit and finish are very nice. The center layout for the stereo and HVAC is beautiful, but we use the climate control instead of most of these. The cupholders in the door pockets are a great use of that space. The front map lights, center consol light and homelink are wonderful
Suggested Improvements
All of my desired improvements have been addressed in the '06 model.
