ReviewWow, do I like this car. Great freeway cruiser, has almost identical dimensions to our Accord but 4 in longer wheelbase, which translates: smooth ride. Built on same platform as Saab 9-3. 6 speed trans works great, very responsive to shift down for speeding up or going up hills. Engine turns only 2k RPM at 70mph. Paddle shifters are handy at times but rarely use. Is eager to shift to overdrive for max fuel economy. If you can drive the speed limit, you can get 34 mpg highway. Very quiet, feels like a heavy, solid car but gets sporty when you throw it around. Nicely laid out interior is elegant and comfortable. I'm 6-3 and have lots of room. So sad these are the last of a great model.
Best FeaturesBase model is loaded. 4 wheel disc brakes are strong and smooth. Beautiful,not trendy exterior styling. Satellite radio;I love the old time radio shows. Nice to have a USA made car. Comfortable for long trips. Wheels look like alloys without the maintenance. Instrument cluster well designed and lit.
Worst FeaturesDo not care for daytime running lights. Center armrest could use more friction to reduce fore/aft motion.
