Very smooth ride and wind won't boss you around. This car is not a toy. At 3,300 lbs, gusts of wind on a bridge do practically nothing. After driving this car for a week, I cannot drive a regular car again without thinking it is a toy! You feel very powerful driving this car (get the 3.4L version if at all possible). It's like driving a tank. Plus, it feels like your sitting in the cockpit of a fighter jet with all the red glowing controls on the dash and the HUD that projects your MPH on the windshield! Never look down to see your speed again. HUD stands for Heads Up Display, and they friggin rock. This car has so much power that I always drive in overdrive am still able to waste most cars. This car produces its best acceleration from 0 to 25mph, so its very fast for city driving. It's also great on the highway. Handles 85mph as gently and easily as most cars do 65. It has so much power that there is a switch that tells the car to stay in 2nd gear instead of first, otherwise you'd way too easily spin the tires when its snowy or slippery. Overall, a wonderful car! I only wish it had better gas mileage, but that's what you get when you have a 3,300 lb car with a 210HP engine. (average car weighs 2750 lbs.. so around a 500lb difference) It gets around 17mpg city, 24 mpg hwy. For everyday driving, stay in overdrive to save gas (you'll still have plenty of power).
