After driving the base, V6 S and the V8 S, I leased the base V6. I felt that it actually drove better than the other two for much less money. For some reason the base Trans seems to shift better than the two higher models. While waiting for my base, I was given a V8 to drive, while very fast, it just wasn't as much fun as the base.
My car has the vision package and I LOVE the blind spot radar and the backup radar. The backup radar has already save me three times from backing up into on coming traffic.
Also the auto high beams is something that sound like a waste but works well and is nice to have.
I wish the
Dynamic Volume Control worked better, it is not bad but just doesn't adjust the radio volume as my last car. I also would like voice activated nav and radio as many cars in this price range have.
