Summary:

A reliable car for paved roads

Faults:

Not much. The TCV can't be tuned. The radio also can't be tuned to local station without modifications. I think this happens because it is a Japanese assembled car.

General Comments:

The car is generally OK for city and highway driving. I am surprised as why this car doesn't have sensors around it to help during parking. The leg room is huge, especially at the back

It about the same as in a Mercedes-Benz S500 series. Acceleration is not bad. My main concern is the squeaking sound from the rear suspention when getting on and of from the car. When doing turns a squeaking sound is heard. My dealer said it was normal. the rear mirror on top of the trunk is really helpful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
