I purchased this car new and took European delivery in April of 2007. So far my wife and myself have put 8300 miles on this car and have been totally satisfied the entire way. I had shopped around looking at Audi, BMW and Volvo. All had their appeal however once I drove the Aero I had found the best bang for the buck. For the money and what it is this car performs right up there with the ladder mentioned. Dead stop pickup is little sluggish with turbo lag present but not huge when it kicks in you are launched nicely. Whats more is 0-60 is just as fast as 60-100 and Autobahn driving was very effortless. The biggest impression on me was handling as I have driven many sports cars and sedans alike. This car feels as solid at 135 as 50 which to my disappointment is where the US spec govorner holds it back. The features and options are all what you would find on cars costing thousands more. The bucket seats are great on long trips. The Bose sound is loud and remains clean. I have only been to the dealer once just this past week for annual maintenance check/oil change. The fuel economy has not been up to ratings using super although this is probably due to the higher speeds however it is slowly improving. There are of course a few quirks, the reversing mirrors tend to not want to return. The MP3 CD does not remember last track when car restarts. The annoying airbag lamps. Rear seat has limited legroom. There is no way to dim to parking lights while car is running, and the dash cup holder is useless. I was also disappointed to learn the hands free bluetooth had to be added. All of this is trivial however and this car is reliable and a great value.
