I bought this car used just for driving back and forth to work. The ride is so good, however, that my wife and I have also driven it on several trips. The ride on the highway is really good, and the mileage is excellent, 40 to 41 mpg cruising at 70 mph, with plenty of power left over. It also has lots of luggage space in back. Driving back and forth to work, I get 35 to 38 mpg. While this is not a race car(it wasn't designed to be one), it has plenty of power for everyday driving, and can keep up with everybody else, including on the interstate. It also is a nice quiet ride at any speed, and is sure footed, both on dry roads or snow.
Ease of finding and using controls on dashboard. Visibility is surprisingly good all around. Lighted instrument cluster is easy to see, even when you have the sun in your eyes.
Cup holders not easy to find without any lights in that part of the console at nighttime. Could use fog lamps as standard equipment.
