Best Features

The engine is great on this car when it gets fuel to it. The gas mileage it pretty decent at 28-30mi/gal mostly highway. The extended waranty!

Worst Features

Other than the above mentioned, a larger gas tank (300mi before gas light comes on), reducing the amount of brake dust(I cannot keep the front wheels clean), and a little more power when running the air conditioning
