This is far and away the best car I've owned. Recently the lighting behind one of the instrument panel displays went out. That is the first and only problem of any sort I've experienced with this vehicle and I've driven it for almost 3 years and put about 50,000 miles on it. The car is a pleasure to drive. Acceleration is outstanding, nearly on a par with Corvettes I’ve owned. Handling is good for a car of this size. It is not quite as nimble in city traffic and parking as a smaller car, but not enough so as to make driving to and from work unpleasant. We’ve found the car to provide more than adequate interior room to make long family trips pleasant.
Acceleration, Heads-up display, reliability.
Get handling up to BMW standards and the car would be perfect.
