This car is not very fun to drive, as it is a 4 cylinder with a CVT transmission. Having said that, the manual shifter, steering feel and comfort, make it a very appealing choice.
If you don't care about the fun, and want a comfy, reliable, good looking, long lasting family sedan, look no further. The accord don't measure up, the camry of the malibu neither. This car drives great, is very quiet inside, the Bose sound I got on this trim is absolute marvelous, the bluetooth works great, is good on gas (22.5 city, 34 hwy), and overall, you can't go wrong with it at all.
Is a veeeeery smooth drive, very smooth.
Bose sound is the best of the best (try it), very smooth and quiet ride (great for highways), good on gas, lots of space, comfy front seats, ipod integration via usb is great
CVT transmission is interesting; test drive it for a while to make sure you like it, Bluetooth streaming audio would be nice. Other than that, is a great car
