This car is awesome, period. Everywhere I go, I get complements on my (new to me) Avant. And the power, its there when you need it ! Now its not a 500 horse powerhouse like some cars out there, but for everyday driving and even when you want to go to the mountain twisties, this car is just right to get the job done with a big smile on your face !
The only two slightly negative things about this car are these : the gas consumption is 13 city / 20 highway. Average is 16mpg. If that shocks you then this isn't the car for you. Then comes the overall cost of ownership, above the gas guzzeling. when she needs to go to the shop for something specific or just a simple oilchange ( which will cost $100 even if you do it yourself) , plan on a bare minimum of $150 to $300.
Now, if your not swayed by any of that and you just plain love this car (like I do) than find the best speciman you can and take the plunge !! Oh yeah, did I mention the exhaust note... Highly addicting !!!!!
