Overall good car for the money

So far, so good. Car went back to the dealer for a steering pull. There's a TSB about it, and it was corrected. No other problems. It's nice both inside and out.
Nice dash layout. Good ride.
The canister-style oil filter does not lend itself to do-it-yourself changes, as you have to remove the bottom air dam (6 bolts) to even get to it. Then you have to replace 2 o-rings for the canister. You also have to find and buy a tool to get the canister off. What a pain!
