General Comments:

Fantastic car. 3.6 Pentastar engine, 8 speed automatic. Basically 300 HP and getting now about 28-30 MPG. Very comfortable seats and spacious interior. Well laid out with soft night running interior lighting. The 8 speed shifter takes some getting used to when looking for Drive. I sometimes go to Low without looking. This needs indentations that make you aware of its gear selection.

The car performs well, and I always need to pay attention to my speed, since it travels smoothly and quietly.

Sound system is the basic version (larger systems available), but sounds great.

It's had two recalls, but they were minor (programming of the computer so the shift light wasn't so bright, and one for the airbag harness system in the seats). No problems experienced with mine though. Well thought out car with plenty of power for a V6. Easily the best car I've ever owned.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
