Good car, but too many annoying problems

ReviewI leased this car a couple of years ago - it goes back in December. I love the styling, the interior room, and the comfort. (We call it our "van" because it's so accomodating.) But there are a lot of little things I hate about it. I hate that to make the seats recline, you have to use a stiff knob rather than the usual lever. I hate that the windshield wipers are special ones you have to get at the dealership, which cost tons to replace, and are not nearly as good as I had in my Honda Civic. And the radio reception is poor. We haven't had any mechanical problems with it, and it's been a fine car to own. Just do some comparison shopping first!
Best Featuresexterion design, spaciousness, cargo area, the little flap that blocks extra light between the two visors
Worst Featuresbetter radio, standard windshield wipers, less turbo lag, better fuel efficiency
