What are your overall impressions? MPG? How is the interior room? How is the trunk space? How is the acceleration? Is it too curb heavy...many of the reviews said that it was.
Handles like a dream, and has very good acceleration, even in the 4 cylinder. The V6 is fast!
Mine's just the 4 cylinder though. Wanted the break on insurance and since I'm married with a kid, I really don't need a big engine car.
Getting anywhere from 28-32 MPG depending on how much traffic I have to sit through. Around 24 if I burn an entire tank city driving. All highway mileage gets me about 35 MPG for a tank. Does swing a bit depending on the type of driving, but for the looks and performance, it's worth it. As to the "Curb heavy" thing, It does hug the ground very solidly. Even drove it on the ice we got earlier this year without any slide issues at all. For me, that kind of handling is a plus. Not that we get a lot of ice, I just like cars that hold in turns without any difficulty. Trunk space is adequate. It's not huge, but it's not tiny. I only give it an average score for trunk space. Plenty of interior room for the driver and passenger. Back seat can be cramped if you've got tall friends, but most sports cars are that way. Besides, I'm driving, so who cares if someone else is cramped. Lol.
I kid, I kid.
It's not that bad though.
The only negative about the car is that there's a pretty good blind spot over the driver's left shoulder. The mirrors are designed to compensate for that, and as long as you're paying attention and use the mirrors, it's not that bad.
Test drive one and see what you think.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
