Traded an '04 Acura TL for the Sport Wagon in search of better gas mileage and flexibility of a wagon. I think this is one of the best engines out there, plenty of power, good mileage (34 mpg on a commute where the TL got 19) It handles as well or better than the TL. Purchased it with Navi, SMG, Ipod and panoramic sunroof. The Navi is not a great value as it doesn't include other technology upgrades like advanced Bluetooth. It is, however well integrated and displays turn-by-turn in the instrument cluster. Bluetooth is OK, but I miss using voice commands to dial the phone (The TL was better in this regard) It is answer- answer using steering wheel buttons.
Overall driving experience, Fun and frugal! The kid's expression when they saw the sunroof, door storage, storage under the cargo floor. Versatility. Ipod integration. Ease of destination entry into Navi. Comfy seats.
More audio warning from the navi when a turn is coming up, advanced bluetooth that allows voice activated dialing. Exterior design a bit boring.
