Review
Expensive maintenance. C$500 Air Mass meter. floaty ride (I need sport shocks). Many features that are standard on less expensive car are not standard. (i.e. CD, intermittent wiper, TSC etc). Interior build quality/material is very good. Everything is still tight after 9yrs. Currently experiencing little foul play in suspension (steering wheel is little shaky at speed). Good fuel economy, but requires premium grade (I tried regular and noticed right away that the car didn't like it). Torque available only after 3k rpm. Don't like the single wiper, and wiper blade is expensive to replace. Transmission is very slow to respond. Lack of side airbags
Favorite Features
REST (very good in winter). Interior quality/material. Good fuel economy. Close windows/sunroof with remote feature.
Suggested Improvements
Many of the improvements are address in later model years. Black lower side, bumpers. TCS, CD player need to be standard. Expensive parts. Use of regular fuel. Use glass imprinted antenna. Faster tranny response. Needs side air bags. (safety shouldn't be compromised)
