A good, comfortable car

ReviewI have enjoyed this comfortable car. It always starts and has never conked out on me while driving on the road. I noticed that holding to the speed limit, especially 55 mph the gas mileage approaches 30 mpg. In the winter, around town I expect 20-25 mpg. I drive with a light foot. I didn't think I wanted a sunroof, but have come to enjoy it, even in winter--opening it on a sunny day with the seat heat and feet heat set high. The antilock brakes have saved me from fender benders when I didn't even realize it was slippery. It handles a bit loose, like a boat, not a bullet, but feels very solid and the engine never feels strained.
Best Featuresanti lock brakes, heated seats, sun roof, plenty of power
Worst FeaturesThe driver's seat leather is beginning to tear. A surprise because I had an 88 Acura for 14 years with no such problems. The automatic transmission has a simulated manual mode -unnecessary- and is governed by a computer that does not permit true down shifting or upshifting in slippery conditions.
