Well i origally bought the car for it'* performance the spec sheet was quite impressive for the price but my favorite part is the comfort those power seats are the most comfortable car seats ive ever sat in and i've been in plenty of luxury cars while mine might not be in the best cosmetic shape at the moment i love the body it'* sleek and dignified but also has some unique and aggresive influence definitely fun to drive love being on highway just nudging the pedal a little and the speedometer effortlessly soars up completely reliable i've dumped in plenty of money on superficial repairs but the engine and drivetrain have yet to give me a problem as for handling i ithnk i'll have to bust some bubbles here perhaps it handles well for a car of it'* size but i would not count on it to win any handling competitions my parent'* subaru forrester could probably outhandle this thing altho i suppose it is better than alot of the current sedans that are getting all tall and narrow the first time i went hard on my parent'* saturn ion i thought damn thing was gonna fall over aorund every turn. but yea i picked comfort

The Forrester is AWD, though.

I can't pick one. I bought it b/c I thought is was a cool looking car for a big sedan. But then I got in it. "Wow, this is like a LazyBoy". Then I drove it. :o I was in love. I love everything about my car, but I can't play favorite.

ok well my old acura legend also could handle infinitely better than a bonneville, without any kind of tower brace, not quite as big as a bonneville but still on the large side

The lack of spaces to put more buttons and gadgets. It'* a challenge to figure out what the car is missing and what else can be added.
