Comfort and safety as well as performance. I spend a lot of time in the car, and these are the most important things I look for.
It is the perfect car for my daily commute. Plenty of legroom and comfortable seating. I drive at least 2 hours a day, and more for my job. I feel safe as my car has been hit twice with minor damage to the car. I live in the Midwest where changing weather conditions are the norm. I have never had a problem with snow or rain. The car now has 140,000 miles and I don't want to replace it. It is the first 6 cylinder car I have owned and can't believe the power it has on the road.
