Car handles great. Probably because of the weight. Doors shut with a nice thud like continental cars. If you are looking for a budget car with nice build, then this is it.
Many others have complained about the fuel consumption, but I guess it depends on how light/heavy footed you are. I am still running in the engine so can't really say how bad it is yet.
I love the seats as the view is great! Just like other MPV's or SUV's. But you don't need to pay an arm and a leg for it.
Steering isn't too light unlike some other Japanese cars that I have driven.
Goes well around bends without understeering.
Cabin soundproofing is average as the engine can give a little growl if you floor it.
Stock cd player is average. Not very musical unless you turn it on loud.
Interior trimmings are good considering the amount you are paying (leather seats, steering wheel, woodlike finishings on console and doors).
Many others have disliked the centre placed dials, but I guess that's their opinion. I personally feel that it is well placed.
I would have preferred if they added a second arm rest for the front passenger.
And made the one for the driver broader.
Overall it's a great car and I can't wait to take it for a long long drive.
