Purchased As New
Bought this car as Lt with sunroof, special alloy wheels and fold down rear seat as leftover 2009. Had dealer install leather which looks identical to manuf leather. Out the door price $21,000, excluding tax and title. After 10,000 miles I am impressed with the value. Decent ride, unexpected fuel economy, great room . Rear seatback folds flat and you can use it as a hybrid station wagon. XM radio with decent speakers standard. Onstar hands free telephone is great. You can buy just the minutes you need and will use. Engine and transmission are proven reliable. Just drove the car from Illinois to Seattle and return, with detours for Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Mount St Helens, etc, etc. and the seats were comfortable. Averaged 28 mpg including a week of in city driving around Seattle. Steering is relatively accurate, brakes could be improved for mountain driving, and transmission shifts accurately and smoothly. Good engine torque. Only drawback is resale value, so deal for a cheap price. Cars almost always have a cash purchase rebate of $4000, sometimes more. I am 62 and have owned cars from BMW,Saab, VW, Ford, Chrysler, Buiok, GMC, Oldsmobile, Mitsubishi and will be buying a Mercedes GLK350 in the fall. If you need a good reliable car with reasonable comfort, mileage, handling and size, this is a good choice. Not a yuppie car. Invisible on the highway.
