I bought this car at the start of February, 2011 after a good bit of research and do not have any major complaints so far. I got the sport model with power heated seats.
It drives very much like a sedan and you never get the feel that you are driving a large seven passenger vehicle. I have been putting 1000 miles/mth; the mileage definitely could have been better, but i knew what i was getting into. Getting about 18.5 miles/gallon with an about 50/50 city/highway driving. I have been hearing wind noise sometimes on the highways and also there is a strange smell that shows up every few days and lasts for few minutes. Will have it checked during the first service appointment next week.
