I have had my E for almost 7 months now. Included in my 16000 miles is a 6300 miles across the US trip from GA to AK (yes, Alaska). I towed a 1500# trailer behind it the entire way. I have absolutely no complaints about the comfort of the seats (even after 10-12 hours). The creature comforts and convenience items were well placed, easy to reach, and worked wonderful. The utilitarianism (is that a word?) of the vehicle is fantastic. We have made the decision to buy a second one to replace our other small SUV. IMHO - you won't regret getting one.
Utility, interior space (can you say cavernous?), pep, quality and reliability. Re-configurable rear seats (and the room it creates). Ease of controls, well laid out.
Heated rear view mirrors, better rear seat (floor) heating, better MPG, and passenger's side PDL control.
