I bought this car back in the spring right when the new model came out. I love the new styling and the interior, ride and acceleration are great. The upgraded stereo with satellite and bluetooth is amazing for a factory stereo. Connect a good MP3 to it and you will be amazed at the sound quality and clarity. The voice-activated bluetooth works very well so far. If you are considering this car, PLEASE NOTE: The new automatic transmission shifts smoothly in highway acceleration and cruising BUT the auto transmission does NOT do well in stop and go, around town driving...it never seems to know what gear to be in and downshifts rather harshly when slowing or coming to a stop-very annoying!
Quiet/smooth ride, highway cruising, acceleration, stereo quality, seat comfort, new styling, high tech features available on the high volume LE model. This care is a GREAT highway cruiser...quiet, smooth, stable and comfortable on the highway. Great MPG too...
Transmission needs some work so that it will shift smoothly in stop and go driving around town. This seems to be a new trend in the new "smart" auto transmissions-supposedly mimics a CVT or manual-but it needs work because its ANNOYING not helpful. The car will not "coast" when u let off the brake.
