This vehicle has to be a big joke. Yes the acceleration is somewhat spirited. However, it is not that great. My sisters' 4-cylinder Galant keeps up with its V6. Plus it has 98,000 miles and no problems. My Alero on the other hand has been in the shop 5 times. Right now at 85,000 the transmission is starting to slip and the air conditioning blower switch and a/c level selector don't work right. This car is trash! Take my advice and buy foriegn.
