After 1 month and 1,000 miles I would have reservations about recommending this car. It looks great, and is overall fun to drive. The navigation, sound, and bluetooth operations make the car easy to drive. The interior is roomy and looks great. When merging into traffic on the second day of owning the car, I almost totalled the vehicle as there was NO response from the engine after pressing the accelerator. This happens constantly. Check nhtsa.gov for current reports. The dealer doublespeaks the issue. I also had defects in the paint that resulted in a repainted bumper. A taillight also didn't fit and required body shop work to fix.
JBL sound system with navigation, plasma cluster, odometer lights and screens, interior look, exterior 2007 redesign, rear window shade - even if it is manual.
Transmission: acceleration hesitation, downshifting when driving up slight inclines; better way to dim interior panel lights at night
