Safety features and a record to longevity.

I like the car a lot, it has many safety features, and is reliable. The rear camera, and most especially the "radar" that tells me another car is approaching when backing up in a parking lot is especially beneficial to avoid an accident. The cruise control is a little difficult to explain in writing, but it is very safety Focused. The inside is leather, and I love the sunroof, it can be opened for a little air movement, or you can open it along with the windows and it almost feels like I am in a convertible.

Reliable and low maintenance.

It burned oil one time between oil changes but has not been an issue since. The seats could be more comfortable. They seemed to have declined in comfort in the 4 years that I have owned it. Love the sunroom, the rear floor mats (optional), the heated seats and the gas mileage that I am getting. It ranges between 26-28 mpg. I have had to replace the drivers side headlight a couple times in 4 years. Otherwise this is a low maintenance vehicle. Love the way it turns on a dime and the rear view camera.

Like it for the most part.

Heater does not work great and it is a little chilly during the winter. Otherwise a great vehicle. All wheel drive works well but if you get a flat tire, you have to replace all 4 tires otherwise the 4 wheel drive will no longer work. Not really sure why that is but it is what I was told at the dealership. It accelerates well but will not go over 110 mph although it is registered for 150 mph which was a little disappointing. That being said, it is not a sports car so I was really no surprised.
