What a quality ride! Bought it used (certified) and have never had a problem, and it rides like a car. Recommend you buy good quality driving tires like Goodyear Forteras - they made all the difference in comfort, handling and mileage and they wear so much better than OTR tires. Unfortunately, you don't realize you're going 85 mph until it's too late (gotten my share of tickets even with a radar detector)! Just put her on cruise and enjoy! My only issue with her is the anti-slip/TRAC system: I've had it start pulling in wet road conditions but think it was perhaps because of a couple of under-inflated tires.
Comfort, leather and safety, despite mileage (get about 14 mph in city and 17 hwy).
Paint on bumper bubbles and peels too easily. Allow front seats to go back further & provide longer arm rests for us tall folk! Angle the center console so one can better see radio and AC controls while driving. Too much bass in stereo system (think was covered by a tech report but you have to pay).
