If you are looking for a safe, fun little car to drive, then this is the one for you. Whether it be around town, on winding country roads, or on the freeway, this car performs as if it had the heart of a sports car (with a more comfortable ride of course). For the value, this will beat any BMW 3 series, any Mercedes C-Class, and any Infinity G class.
The T5 engine is a must and you will never bored accelerating from a stop light or passing someone on the freeway. The upgraded Dolby Digital Surround System sounds like that of an expensive home audio system. The Harmon Kardin head unit and Dyna speakers are a great combonation.
No significant improvements are in order for this car, but I often wonder what an S40 R might be like.
