It's been a year and I'm even more impressed and pleased with my purchase. Went on a couple of road trips from MA to VA on I95, through major cities like Stanford, NYC, DC, Richmond. 31MPG - Impressive. The comfort of the driving position is wonderful. I am reminded of the line from a competitor "... when you turn your car on, does it return the favor?" In this case a resounding yes! Climate, seating, interior quality, reliability - all excellent. Engine purrs at night. Had two service visits and the only thing changed were indicator bulbs. 1 year and 16000 miles later I am happy with my choice.
Interior quality, build (unique body style), the sound system, AWD in deep snow. The car is awesome.
I believe they have MP3 capabilities in the 2008 so I can't say that any more. The satellite radio deal needs improvement... Below 27 degrees engine auto shifting is choppy. More rear leg room.
