Stand Trans a must with this engine.
ONLY FUN-TO-DRIVE ECONOMY CAR W/
PERSONALITY ON THE MARKET. Chassis so
solid, drives like a dream. Great
crash test ratings make me feel safer
than I would on truck/SUV-strewn
roads. Interior easy on the eyes.
Seats need better lumbar support, and
velour upholstry sucks. As GLS owner,
I suggest sticking w/ the GL. GLS
options aren't as well-designed as
rest of car. Big-picture: 26K problem-
free mi in first 12 mos w/ average 45-
47 MPG, and starts down to -55F here
in ND has convinced me of the overall
value and sound design of this car -
esp. that engine!
