"I have the special edition. There are a lot of things about the car that I love. It's very smooth and quiet, yet it has a decent amount of power. Features like a premium sound system, sun roof, power driver's seat, in-dash computer with MPG information etc., and the styling on the dash and paneling give the car a luxurious feel. This car seems like it was built for long road trips or long commutes. Get up on the highway, set the cruise control, get some tunes going, and you're flying.
My two biggest complaints are the location of the cup holders on the center console, and the ride feel on bumpy roads.
I bought the car used with low profile tires and large than normal rims, but even taking that into consideration the ride at low speeds on bumpy roads (dirt roads or pot hole ridden roads) in rather noisy and uncomfortable. I can feel a lot of the road through the car, and it feels clunky and rattling.
My car is stick shift, so the placement of the cup holders is annoying if I have a drink with a straw or even a tall water bottle in the cup holder. I have to either reach around the drink to shift, or let the straw/bottle dig into my are as I shift. It's a minor complaint, but an oversight in design."
