- Good turning radius, nice looks, good highway mileage
- Lousy radio, road noise, lack of right foot room for driver, musty vent smell
I am happy with the car, it was that expensive after all. The thing has a ton of interior room - my previous car was a Volvo 240 wagon. The musty odor from the vent system is very annoying in a new car. It has been serviced and that fixed it for about 2 weeks. I just leave the window open when I part in the garage and it seems to help. The turning radius is amazingly good and the steering does not whine at full lock. The key can be hard to remove at times. The chrome on the gear selector is blinding in the sun. The sun visors are cool - they actually extend along the rail when you want (had not seen that before maybe this is common). it is not a nimble car - sort of un VW-like in that regard and there is a LOT of road noise. The electronics are cool and I have had no problems with them. The rear gate operates remotely from the key fob. Do not lose that key fob - they are $$. I use Regular gas and have heard no knocking. There is not enough room on the driver's right foot. The latter is my main issue with this car. Good visibility. Lots of places to stash things and the storage unit for driver can be used with the lid up slightly so it reaches your elbow. The interior is a little "hard" no padding on door etc. Easy to get rear seats down. I like the tranny's Auto Hold feature to relax the driver's foot at stops or in stop and go traffic.
