The seat was very comfortable. Most cars today have very nice seats.
There was a digital speedometer. I thought that went out with the 90s. Analog instruments are quicker to read. There was no oil temperature gauge. Odd!
There were no blind spots; I could see everything I needed to see.
The interior had a lot of cloth. That is nice but I prefer leather.
Good headroom, which I need. The steering wheel telescoped but did not adjust up & down.
I made a panic stop starting at about 80. Very smooth but at about 10 mph I got a bucking from the front end. The salesman said that was normal. Heck, I want smooth to 0 mph. With my hands off the steering wheel, it did stop straight with no pull.
The stick was similar to a VW in that, in my opinion, had slop.
All wheel drive is nice but I have an AWD for the snow in the local mountains. I live in Southern California. Other than that, I have no need for AWD.
The bottom line is: it reminded me of a dress up VW, maybe because I was in a VW so much in my youth. Way over price and too many on the road.
