I've had the car for about 2 months &
I'm still impressed. Car has tremendous
grip. Turbo boost peaks at low revs
giving superb & effortless off the line
acceleration. Seems much quicker then
specs suggest. Great auto transmission,
almost never feel it shifting.
Tremendous brakes & AWD, never heard
the tires squeal even under emergency
conditions. Accelerates 0-60 within .1
sec of the more $ auto T5 & R models &
R model REQUIRES changing to winter
tires. Had that pain with my last car.
Added on a Magellan navigation system.
Absolutely awesome. I can't get lost no
matter how hard I try.
Overall a great everyday car.
Good looks. Acceleration. Grip.
Handling. Quiet ride even with open
moon roof. Rear & passenger seats fold-
lots of cargo space. Pushbutton folding
rear headrests. Easy to use stereo &
climate controls. Seems to glide on
smooth surfaces, no RWD push or FWD
pull-praise the AWD.
Center console too low for resting
right elbow. No interior trunk release.
Trunk lid too low & hard to close.
Could be smoother over bumps. Mediocre
Stereo & cruise controls on steering
wheel poorly positioned. Rear seat
releases should be in the car not in
