General Comments:

I am very satisfied with this car.

The stereo system could be a little better. The buttons are not "modern" and the stereo doesn't display a volume level. When playing a CD, you don't get the benefit of seeing the time on a song at all, and you only see the track you're on if you adjust the volume. Even then, it shows only for a few seconds. The equalizer is nice, but the stereo sometimes "forgets" the station equalizer settings.

The dual power seats are great and have many settings. This car also has two temperature (hi/lo) heated seats and it is a great bonus on cold days. My only complaint about the seats is that the leather is not very soft. Front and rear could both use a little more leg room.

The power sunroof is nice. I don't like, however, how when opening it opens all the way with one touch of the switch. It also pulls the sun shade back behind the opening, making it somewhat difficult to get back out. Closing is the opposite of opening. You have to hold the button down to close all the way. You then have to judge when it is completely closed or it will open to the "pop up" position. You have to manually find the right spot to close it.

Fantastic, spacious trunk and rear split 60/40 fold down seats a real bonus.

3.5 liter V6 has good power, even with automatic transmission.

Many compliments received on the body style/ attractiveness of the car. Rear spoiler compliments the features.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
