Had the base model now for 6 months and loving it. The take off is astounding clean shifts and comfy interior. Gas mileage I've been getting is around 24 mpg half highway half city. The interior on the 06 is a nice improvement over the 05. It feels far more solid. Trunk space is fine for me and I can accommodate a lot it only takes a while to organize the trunk if I do a big shopping trip. Very roomy for 2 people and road noise is low unless you run at high revs then the engine loves to growl. Passing power great even in 5th gear 6th for cruising mainly. Haven't had anything break or make funny noises. Cant get a hold of an appointment at the dealership for maint to save my life.
Love the 18" rims, standard power features, seats, feeling I get starting it up every day, all the cubby holes and storage spots. Controls are close at hand and easy to cycle through
Upgrade the standard stereo a little more. View through rear windows is nearly non existent.
