Very stylish car. Had a 2009 model for three years and the 2013 is nicely improved. Very easy handling around corners. Nice, tight turning radius. Gets impressive gas mileage for an all-wheel drive vehicle. Brakes feel solid and sure. Ride is not too stiff, not too soft -- just right. Is the best deal out there for a vehicle with all-wheel drive with a good set of features at a reasonable price. Overall -- very satisfied. I would rate excellent in all categories, but this is not a luxury vehicle. A 4 in this class of vehicle is a very good rating.
All wheel drive. All wheel disc brakes. Tilt / telescoping steering wheel. Bluetooth hands-free. Cruise control, music and phone controls on steering wheel are very easy to use / intuitive. Heated front seats. Very good gas mileage. Great visibility out of windows. Sporty red lighting on dashboard reduces distractions in night time driving.
Add lights to the visor vanity mirrors. Make alloy wheels with fewer spokes -- too many spokes is too hard to clean. Reduce road / engine noise coming into the interior cabin. Upgrade stereo system to better speakers.
