I would not recommend this for now..wait a year or two for the some changes. engine is very strong and does not compliment the handling. it does not hold tight enough on curvy roads like around mountains but in a straigh line it's very nice, quite and smooth. but around town, handling is fine.what amazed me the most is the brake system. It's very powerful. it really bites. regarding gas mileage, i get almost 30mpg 85% highway with milow driving. the transmission shifting to second gear is very noticeble or is not smooth. i already got 7100miles. i use mobil 1 oil. after 2 mins engine warms up at 60degrees and auto stop works. overall I rate this car 7.5. there is plenty of room for improvent
XM, airbags, rear spoiler, climate control like the auto climate control really work well.
headlights could be a little brighter or better design like the new camrys. little signal lights on the fenders like the new jettas for safety. spare tire, stranded somewhere for 9hrs on a holiday with exploded left front tire, 17"rims. better suspension set up. 50series tires or 55 for handling.
