I test drove a 4 CYL and a V-6, no comparison. I would not go for a four. I wanted a base to save money but I wanted leather and added it at the dealer. They did not have a V-6 base when I test drove, just SE and LTD. I ordered the V-6 base to be sent in from the port. The car looks great and feels great to drive. I was disappointed in the lack of certain things that are not there nor can they be added at the dealer. No outside temp reading, no fog lights, no trip fuel econ reading, no homelink garage control. A car with a 30K sticker, you'd think they would have some of those features! Bottom line, I did not do enough homework to see some of the items I wanted are not on the Base V6.
Smooth ride, great comfort.
Ditch the antenna mast,add fog lights, home-link, outside temp reader, trip fuel econ. Better paint quality, I have 2 defects in the blizzard white finish.
