"I love this car! It is my first brand new vehicle purchase and I couldn't be happier with it. People's heads constantly turn when I drive by and I'm always getting compliments. I love that the back seats recline for comfort and I haven't had a single problem. I would buy a second one tomorrow."
"We bought one of the first available SPEC's in Aug '06 - the dealer got it from 150 mi away.
We are AMAZED at the value for the price and the quality. Paid $15K for it and it's actually worth more on KBB after a year's ownership. Handles nice, gets great mileage esp. on the highway and is totally loaded with all the goodies (air, power, etc) you need for a comfortable commute, which is what my husband uses it for.
The engine is the Camry's and as such it has great performance. Very torquey - can do stop and go even with a 5 speed - not much shifting.
The front seat, driver/foot/gas pedal position is the only negative for me. I find I have to hold my foot such that after an hour's drive my back starts to bother me. I wish it had cruise, but since I only drive it now and then it doesn't much matter."
