Interior design is fantastic, night driving is a pleasure, dash is very pleasant to look at with the white lights black backdrop.
Insurance rates are lower on this car then any hybrids ($200 a yr less then a Prius for me), more then pays for the extra cost of diesel.
The navigation system is so-so, but I knew that when I bought it from the test drive.
The only reason I still went with the top end nav package is because of the KEYSS system,
never need to take the keys out of my pocket is sweet.
Fix the HPFP failure through a recall.
I would not buy one of these used or with a salvage title until that happens, new is the only way to go.
