Hands-down, this has been the very best car I've ever owned and driven (and I've owned 5-6 other vehicles). The gas mileage on trips exceeded the expected number. I've hauled dirt, plants and lumber in this thing. It goes on long trips with winding wet roads and steep inclines. It has been driven "off road", and has taken a beating over the last several years (2 hail storms, 2 hits, juvenile delinquency carvings). All that and it is still great looking and great moving. Zoom Zoom Zoom. I want another one, and am less thrilled with the Mazda 3 and 6.
The gas mileage and the zip are the best features, and the sunroof has never leaked.
Rides louder than I'd like and rides a little rough. (My mother's back issues prevent her from riding in it, but she can ride in a Ford Crowne Victoria).
