This car drove incredibly well, got fantastic gas mileage, and was very comfortable. Unfortunately, I was in a collision earlier this week. I was hit head on going 45mph and I walked away from the accident unfazed. This car was so safe and I felt so fortunate to be in such a safe vehicle.
Great, reliable euro car.

The 2.5L engine has a nice, snappy feel to it. Plenty of power. Rear seat has TONS of room for a sedan that's on the smaller side. Gas mileage is fantastic, regularly hit around 30 even when driving on my short commute to work on a regular basis. 33-35 on the open highway between 70-75MPH. Only detractor is the cabin is a bit noisy at higher speeds, even with quieter tires.
Even with an automatic transmission, in sport mode this thing is a blast to drive. Lots of customization options available for you aftermarket fans. No major issues, I've put about 30k miles on it since purchasing it and haven't had to do a thing other than regular service visits.
I am not too familiar with German cars, I noticed this car takes a long time (more than 15 min) for the A/C to get cold. Then it does blows cold. In Miami, this is critical. My other vehicles don't do that. No matter how hot is outside. It spends a lot of gas for a compact vehicle. We just have it for a short time, My daughter drives it, I need to get organized to take it to the dealers for a check up or some orientation. But I am not as happy as I was when I bought any of my others cars
