My first car in this class and I wanted something reliable, which meant it had to come from Japan. So the choice with this or a Lexus, and I have no complaints. After having the car for almost two years I still say WOW! Fast, smooth, and great options. It took a little wile to learn how the options work...but after you understand they come second nature.
XM radio, and the ability to pass someone quickly going up hill from the redlight at the bottom the hill. AC seats work great, again a bit to get used to, but after you have them you will demand them in every car.
They corrected any flaws with the 06 version. More wood inside and turning radius.
