We have the XLS with "mandatory" options VSC/traction control, JBL & heated seats. Have owned for two months, 1600 miles. Very good overall. 3 kids fit comfortably in the rear seat. No hump in the floor is a big advantage. Good acceleration, tight handling. No snow yet, thus jury is still out on VSC.
The sound system is awesome. Love the sunroof. Regular gas. Minor item: they made a cutout in the rear window defogger for a parking permit. Nice.
MPG not as advertised, 19 mpg tankful after tankful for my commute to the train station. 22 mpg average highway. Lose the cassette, add an iPod connection. Too many interior compartment doors, one sticks already.
