Competent and reliable

ReviewReliable. Conservatively iconoclastic styling. Very competent handling. And did I say reliable? Ours is about to turn 100K, and all we've done is change the fluids, plugs, and timing belt at normal intervals.
Best FeaturesThis is absolutely the best car I've ever driven in snow without AWD or traction control. With 4 Blizzaks or Dunlop Graspics, this car blasts through snow and ice with confidence. Credit goes to nice size, balance, good brakes, and a smooth power curve.
Worst FeaturesI can never sit perfectly comfortably behind the wheel (GXE trim). The seats are tigh for big guys, the bottom cushion feels hollow where it should support the butt, and the wheel and driver's seat are slightly offset. It's my wife's car, though, and she's loved it.
