AWD is impressive in untreated snow-
covered roads (3"). Able to stop,
start, and climb hill without
difficulty. Bi-Xenon headlamps are a
must for rainy night-time driving.
Speed sensitive steering makes parking
a breeze. I looked at BMW 5; Lexus
ES330 and Audi 6. I feel I made the
best choice for price, comfort and
convenience items. My passengers are
impressed with the comfort (back seat
has leg room!) Gas mileage has been
19.4 for many short stops; 27 for
highway driving. It's a pleasure to
drive with the comfort and engine power.
Speed sensitive steering, Xenon
headlights, grocery bag holder,
moonroof, power, and comfort.
Wish the trunk lid would actually raise
when unlocked. The lid is heavy to
open as you struggle with groceries.
