Purchased for fuel economy with performance. Fast and quick handling. Runs like a V8. A better riding set of tires would make this car more comfortable on the freeways in CA. The factory Michlin S-8's are hybrid tires for fuel economy- they ride hard. Fuel economy is getting better now at 4,000K. A fuel additive gets us 40MPG Hyway and 30 in the city-best mileage. Average driving is lower at 25/35. Sound system is just ok. Dealer response has been good. I replaced the tire pump with a mini spare. No problems so far. We like the car! Brakes seem too sensitive and have a tendency to grab quickly at low speeds or when coming to a stop.
Acceleration, handling and spirited driving with excellent control. You can get a 255 hp V6 with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder, and power like a V8.
Sunroof (06), Better radio/sound system, auto dim mirrors, better riding tires, darker tinted glass, full or mini spare tire. longer warranty (36K/3yrs)- 50/5 would be better as standard. Brakes grab too quickly at low speeds, Auto- stop feature should have a on/off switch.
