This car has been great, on my 5th month of driving it. Literally twice the horsepower of my 97 Corolla, very smooth ride, super quiet, Fantastic! sound system. Tons of room in the back for kids or adults. Huge trunk. Gas mileage is a bit less than I would like, but I sacrificed on purpose to get the V6 power. Still giving me 20+ mpg on my commute.
Stereo system is outstanding, my Sirius Radio is built in. I also like the instant MPG feedback and other stats on the dash. Heated seats are awesome!
My only gripe with this car is that the XLE V6 didn't come in a stick shift. The "smart" shifting compensates mostly for that.
