I drove about 600 miles on this car the 2.5 model, it has too much noise, too much vibration at high speeds. Has no stereo controls on the wheel, the oil meter is too small, so I at a point didn't realize that my gas was empty, until I heard the low fuel noise.
Otherwise, it had good power, acceleration is not bad.
The doors are too stiff, one need to be a body builder to open the doors and the back trunk hood(or you'll have great biceps after constant usage of this car)
For a tall person like me, not enough leg space, even very little room between the brake and the gas pedal, my leg was touching either.Gas mileage was about 29 in the Hwy and 20 in the city.
I would recommend a 06/07 Hyundai Sonata as miles ahead from this car.
