Great design and drivability are the hallmarks of this sporty hatch. Mechanically it is still going strong as it approaches the 40K mark. The A/C failed, however, though it was replaced under warranty (took 2 tries!) Aluminum pedals are great, as is the premium stereo (after re-flash). Visibility out the back slightly poor. Biggest problem: 18" Huffs EAT TIRES! I have replaced numerous tires due to Pennsy potholes and had rims straightened once. Ouch! Buy a 17" wheel for the sake of the extra sidewall. Noisy rough ride just reminds you why you like to hang onto that fat padded wheel so tightly at speed. Great lines! I have thought about trading it when the warranty is over, but....
Nice leather and interior with PKG 2. Mucho speed and it handles great! nice exhaust note. Roomy with the back seat down. Four doors makes it practical.
A/C FAIL! Prepay the Sirius radio at sale for 5 years, ok? 18" wheel and suspension package is too stiff for "normal" use. Auto volume increase on sound system = annoying. Seat bolsters a bit too high on front seats.
