Pros: leather seats are some of the most comfortable I've sat it.
Cons: the leak
Advice: buy it,you will love driving it. This is one enjoyable car. you will never know its a wagon!Love the car. Overall I am very pleased with it. I only rate the quality a 4 because the first week, we had a heavy rain storm and the car leaked. Apparently there was a spotweld which didn't happen in the drivers side wheel well and this caused a leak. The dealer fixed the problem and installed new carpeting just in case. I did not want a moldy smelling new car, and the dealer took good care of me. I got the leather package, the bose, ect Everything except the sport package. I think it looks better w/o the sport package.
Pros: I REALLY LIKE THE NEW 6 SPD AUTO. TRANS. IN HILLY DRIVING COMBINED WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL ITS PRETTY AMAZING.
Cons: COULD BE QUIETER.
Advice: GET A 2005 WITH THE 6 SPD AUTO. TRANS. ITS WORTH THE EXTRA $.JUST BACK FROM A 6800 MI TRIP THRU THE USA. ITS GREAT. ALL TYPES OF DRIVING RAIN,SNOW,MOUNTAINS DESERTS. YOU CAN USE REGULAR GAS BUT I THINK PREMIUM MAXIMIZES THE PERFORMANCE. THE HIGH SPEED HANDLING IS EXCELLENT AND I LOVE THE WAY THE BRAKES HANDLE VARYING WEATHER CONDITIONS.
