Pros: Heated & Cooled Seats
Cons: PriceBeautiful car, I receive many complements. It's a smoot ride and I love the sunroof and heated and cooled seats.
Pros: heated seats
Cons: nothingI love the looks of this car and driving it with the smooth ride and heated and cooled seats is a plus.
Pros: The performance & handling
Cons: The 'stiff' ride
Advice: Customize it like I did and you'll be much happier with it.The 2009 STS rides rough because of its Sports suspension. It also has too much wind pressure noise going in to strong headwinds. The 302HP V6 is high performance and the handling is great. The added features are AI such as blind spot mirror warning, warning feature for drifting out of your lane,etc. The Cad transmission with automatic, 'sport' automatic and 6 speed manual options is super and adds to performance tremendously. The GPS is not user friendly and operation could be greatly simplified. My dealer customized this car with the chrome V grille, chrome rocker panels and chrome background for rear license which along with the spoiler on the trunk and the new dark blue metallic paint job really makes a sharp looking unit. Mileage is about 23 MPG average and can be maintained at 80 mph road speeds. If it rode better, it would be a premium unit.
