Review
Moving on from 6spd manual sports car. Ride comfort is as good as it'll get while maintaining this wonderful handling. During sharp cornering, moderate bodyroll. Acceleration very responsive, will not down shift needlessly due to high torque and close ratio gearing (even Auto). Highway very stable, good throttle response. tourque is very high due to inline-6, HP is just enough to give spirited ride. The lack of performance is balanced by luxury and handling. You won't regret value VS price paid. Purchased for invoice price, other test drives include Subaru wrx Sti, BMW330, Maxda RX-8, Infinity G-35, Acura TL.
Favorite Features
Throttle response. Close ratio gearing Auto (better acceleration). Interior quality. Exterior design. RWD. Tourqiness from inline-6. Handling. Amenities. 240Watt stock system. Highly muffled yet sporty exhaust. Engine potential for turbo/SC upwards to 300-500HP on stock internals.
Suggested Improvements
Better fuel economy (ave 330mi to low gas light). Upped to 250HP while keeping inline-6 layout. Larger trunk OPENING. Memory seat function for side mirrors not just the seats. Replace steering wheel shifter w/ radio and climate control.
