The new body is very nice, however it
resembles the Camry too much. Fit and
finish are suburb. Night time
instrument panel is magnificent. The
car is full of little conveniences like
the drivers dead pedal,tilt out coin
holder, compass in the rearview mirror,

complete windshield cleaning.
Fit/finish. Improved seat cushioning.
Quiteness. Solid, protected feeling.
Abundance of safety features. When
feeling frisky, shift selection gate
allows for driving as if it were a
stick shift. Auto door locks. One touch
open/close for all windows and moon
Horsepower/torque to 260 area. More
controls on steering wheel. Better
daylight instrument view. Allow coin

Elec.tilt/tel & increase up position
for easier entry/exit.

Sound system, Auto opening windows and
moon-roof with remote. Uses 87 octane

best car I have ever owned out of the
30 or so I have had.
The NAV system is super, the Mark
Levinson stereo system is super, and
the fit and finish beats any of its
