This car is a pleasure to drive! It has all the power you need to do fast safe passing, to merge onto quickly moving urban highways with comfort and to have a little simple g-force fun. The idle stop engine is great for guilt-free driving on ozone alert days. The car creates its own serenity zone: no engine noise while waiting at stop lights, good road noise damping on rough, patched highways, and one sweet little sound system. I also like the fact that it has 4 cup holders for the front seat and dual climate controls. The fuel economy is quite good for such a powerful, fun-to-drive car. I won't say we're saving money on gas though, because we do more driving just for the fun of it now.
My favorite features include the V-6 engine, idle stop at traffic lights, steering wheel stereo controls, the power driver's seat, tilt and telescope steering wheel, 4 wheel double wish bone suspension, 253 effective horsepower combined with 28 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, and heated front seats!
The 850 lbs. passenger and cargo capacity is too low. You can't transport four 220 lb engineers or five 180 lb adults without exceeding the vehicle's passenger and cargo weight limit. The car could also use power lumbar support for the driver. Otherwise the car is perfection itself.
