I LOVE this car! Bought it back in august of '01, put about 3k miles on her since then. The ride is smooth, the seats fit your body wonderfully. Tight handling. Beauty of an engine, quite when you cruise and absolutely PURRs when you give it the gas. Sound system is solid. Sunroof is a MUST on this car, no exceptions. Heater works very well in the cold.
It's all about the ride. Quiet and smooth.I opted for the interior upgrade, brushed aluminum(?) console. Don't quite remember the term that's used for it, but it breaks up the black nicely. It's not cheap, but it's most definately worth it.
Some road noise from the tires on the highway. AC takes a little while to get cool. Side mirrors are a tad small, but perfectly adequate. This car doesn't like speedbumps.
