Bought it for the safety,handling, build quality and reliability & got all four. Handles better than most vehicles on the road with the standard suspension. Steering is quick, firm and accurate, great braking. Solid ride. Back-up camera makes parking a snap. I advise against the sport package unless you drive only on billiard table smooth roads (and who of us does). Even the standard suspension can be harsh on bumpy roads. We actually fit three across in the back seat (2 kid seats and my mother-in- law) on long trips. Bose stereo is very good, and the seats are supremely comfortable. It's a station wagon with athletic/sporty handling (it ain't no SUV) and that's a good thing!
Handling, braking, steering, safety features, reliability. As such it is a better wagon choice than anything made by Subaru, Volvo, BMW or Mercedes.
A 6th gear for highway fuel econ improvement, or a lower rpm 5th gear to lower rpms for fuel economy. Widen the vehicle by an inch or two. Lengthen the cargo area by a few inches. A few more horsepower for its weight would be nice (like the new 306 hp in the 07 G35). Nothing else.
