This is a well-equipped sports vehicle. With that in mind, the ride is tight and the seats are sports-fitted, not soft and cushy -- this is not a luxury car. Having the option to choose a response package is great for either economy or performance mode. There is some gearbox noise, but it is to be expected with an all-wheel drive vehicle, and the road noise is slightly noticable. The model comes with almost all options, and the only complaint I have is with the cheaper radio tuner that often gets interference on low-frequency stations from rear-window defroster and a couple of other gadgets. A fun car to drive in either automatic or manual, the car hugs the road, corners well, and gets 24-25 mpg in economy mode.
Comfortable and Safe

You can't beat all-wheel drive for safety and peace of mind. especially if you drive in snowy weather. This is a great choice for the sedan market. Sensibly priced and well-equipped, you would be hard pressed to do better for the money. I've been averaging 25 mpg city and 34 highway, so it's economical to operate as well. I love the smooth ride.

No real complaints to this point. We really enjoy the car and it has been everything that we hoped it would be. I am a little concerned about the materials in parts of the interior, particularly the door, as they feel cheap and I'm not sure how they will hold over time. For now though, couldn't be happier.
