Overall good car but...

I like the quiet ride. Seats are comfortable but with my long legs I would prefer for the seat to go back more. The GPS totally stinks, don't blow your money on it, I have a 200 dollar GPS for my other car that is WAY easier to use. The traction control should have a manual override button. I got stuck on the hill going up my driveway in an ice storm and needed a bit more wheel spin, the traction control did not allow it. I love the headlights for brightness but just found out that the replacement bulbs are $325 EACH and yes I did say $325 EACH. Both went out at once at 50,000 miles and neither the basic warranty or the extended warranty covers it.
Quiet ride, gas MPG - 24-25 normal driving, and 28-31 hwy depending on how much I stick my foot in it.
GPS STINKS, needs - traction control override, back up camera, more drivers seat leg room, and the telescoping steering wheel should extend more.
