This car has amazing reliability history. I don't know why it never took off in sales. I mean, you can't get a sleeker, snazzier, roommier, sportier, car for the same price. It is my second S model, and I don't agree with the review given by Edmunds. I am selling mine to get into a house with all these low mortgage rates flying around.
With the high ratings for reliability and build quality given by Consumer Reports, I think this is a great car.
Back seats are very comfortable, all my friends say so.
The Miller Cycle engine has low displacement, and doesn't put the driver in the back seat when given gas. The same engine with a bigger displacement, like 3.0 would be awesome. Right now the standard S model has an adequate 210bhp.
