First I would like to address two issues mentioned in other reviews. Those with "bouncy" suspension seem to have the SE models. I haven't had those problems with the GLS. Also it was said that there is a delay in acceleration. That is true, but that is due to the ECO mode. There is a slight delay when accelerating from below (aprox) 3,000rpm to above 3,000. It has something to do with keeping your driving at low, gas conserving RPMs. Disable ECO mode (by hitting TRIP till you see ECO ON, then holding TRIP until off) and you will have much smoother acceleration.

Favorite Features

- Roomy for the footprint of the vehicle. - Solid sounding stereo, can clearly listen to music with windows down on the highway. - Pleasant interior design, and I still like the glowing blue dash lights. - Clean look, it doesn't look sporty, but it also isn't a ticket magnet. - Steering and handling is responsive enough to not feel disconnected from the road.

Suggested Improvements

- A turbo would make a world of difference. There is enough power to comfortably pull into traffic, or pass on the highway, but it feels like JUST enough. - Like it's power, the styling is JUST enough. Nice headlights, tail lights, and grill, but everything else is as bland as a potato.
