Reliable, ample power, chick grabber
Only a few things have gone wrong with this car.
One, the driver side window is messed up, and it has been to the repair shop at least 3 times to fix. Basically, it is off its track, and goes up at a queer angle, the result being that the window is loose when it is down, and you can hear it rattling around in the door, and a small space between the window and weather stripping, creating wind noise and water can trickle in, sometimes when I wash the car, etc.
Also, the seat belts keep twisting on me, it's a bit annoying.
Also, the paint seems a little cheap, I am beginning to see rust spots. This never happened on my older cars. (VW jetta, 1987 nissan maxima)
This car has been great to me. Ample power in the 200 HP V6 to pass, merge, go up the big hills, etc. Attractive looking with the stock spoiler and bigger 16 in wheels, due to the sport package. The cockpit is aesthetically pleasing, and wraps around you. Great for two medium sized people to go on road trips on, as my girlfriend and I have done many times.
Handles fairly well, but the ride is VERY bumpy, but I'm driving a sports car, I can't complain.
You will get chicks with this car.
My last road trip, I went mostly the speed limit, and all highway driving, and I got 30 MPG, ridiculous!
Not very much room in the trunk, if you try to move with this car, you'll find almost nothing fits : (
The power seat lets me pick a good seating position, and my back NEVER hurt, not even after 6-12 hour road trips, unlike my jetta which would cramp my back after driving 30 minutes or so.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
