In 40,000 miles plus the car has been a dream to own.
I drive to work in South Florida at speeds of 80MPH every day, the car rides smooth, feels safe, no rattles, and is extremely comfortable.
Car averages 26 miles per gallon for high speed highway travel, I use the 87 octane cheap fuel as recommended.
Everything still works in this nearly 8 year old car. Every switch, button, and lever has held up. Gone are the good old days of my Ford when random parts would be laying on the front seat. Build quality is great.
No sex appeal. The car is very comfortable, but not fun to drive and does not get looks. Coming from a rare sports car I feel like I am driving with a paper bag over my car.
Good speed. Car feels very fast, almost sporty. The engine, much like the Lexus version has plenty of power. In one of my idiot moments I punched it at a stop line racing an Eclipse to the merge lane. He never had a chance.
Big Big Big. There is plenty of room in the car, I can comfortably fit six if I have to, and I am always catching rear passengers looking around at the size. The car is not overly long, but very spacious.
Fair braking. The brakes squeak like mice, but since the windows are pretty well sealed I rarely hear it.
Durable sound system. After pounding music for three years the speakers have not blown, I usually trash speakers inside of six months.
Easy to ding. The side panels are not well protected, the car takes on dings very easily.
