This car reminded me of the line from Vacation "You think you hate it now just wait until you drive it." It has plenty of power and the fuel mileage was ok (23 mpg 95% highway travel). I will now list my complaints in order from annoying to down right painful. 1) It is noisy you hear every bump and uneven/rough pavement. This car had 4k miles when I picked it up and my sons 20 year old Mercury Grand Marquis with 300k miles is quieter by far. 2) The buttons on the steering wheel are not only hard to read but are touchy several times I changed the radio while turning into a parking lot. 3) The touch screen is annoying. Not all functions are on the touch screen, so you have to use the buttons on the radio or the climate control to operate some functions. These buttons are illuminated in red and at night they are very hard to read. I guess owning this vehicle for some time you could learn where all these controls are but when your driving cross country in a snow storm not being able to turn on the rear defrost or turning the front to just defrost without cooking your feet would be a big help. 4) The steering is touchy as are the brakes. This is hard to describe. A small flick of the wheel to avoid say a piece of tire in the road way or fighting a cross wind causes an unnerving swerve. In time you could get use to this but you should not have to. Tapping the brakes to kick off the cruise will cause a nose dive. Its very hard to get use to. 5) This is the big one. This car is uncomfortable. If you test drive it for 10 or 15 minutes you will think I'm nuts but, you take this mid-evil torture device out on the open road for over an hour and things start to come clear. The seats had to have been designed to be uncomfortable you can not get that many things wrong on accident. The seats are narrow and bolstered on the outside of the back which pushes your shoulders forward. The head rest is the most comfortable if you remove it and put it on backwards otherwise it pushes your head forward. There is no leg room to straighten out your legs in any seat. The drivers right foot is pressed against the tunnel. The armrests are too low and the window sill is too high and not padded. Yes the rear seats recline but they fold in the middle of your back. I guess if you wanted a car just for short trips it would not be bad but if you like to drive or take long road trip avoid this thing like the plague. My wife daughter and I were sore. All kidding aside this thing was painful to drive and ride in.
Does not recommend this car!!
