My last cars were a 2000 sonata which i sold with 100k, then i had a mazda 6 for a few year. I brought this as my wife`s and our kid baby carrier. I was aware of the hesitation and did test drive 2. One had it and i picked the other. I have 40k and need tires.My wife drives very smooth. We took it on a 2000 mile trip and got like 38 mpg. Compared to my 5 speed Jetta it lacks in finish, performance and handling but it's a different beast.I looked for post June build date in 07 where all the problems suddenly disappeared per all research i did.
