I wouldve liked to see the leather AL7s carried over into the 00+ years. The 60/40 split fold downs in the back wouldve been nice, but I think it wouldve sacrificed comfort to rear passengers[ which in my car has only been two people in 1yr], SSEis shouldve came with the 12 disk changer standard, possibly in the center console or inconspicously away on the side of the trunk, not mounted to the underside of the rear deck. Standard strut brace and bars like offereded in the GXP, offered to the SSEI/SLE models of years 00-03 models. Thats all I can think of right now.

Default brakes

Yes my only complaint are the brakes, but you could easily solve it by picking the right friction materials.
Believe me I learned from experience. Don't go OEM.

Is there something we should know here?

Come on, I KNOW I'm not the only one who'* play "auto tag" or "Car hide and seek"

But those are topics all in themselves

Dunno, I love the auto-on/auto-off. I've never had to "lose a tail" or anything, but to each theiur own

Well Jack, I think you have problems. Your wife lies to you abt your size, ex-girlfriends stalk you (according to you).

Anyway, I love the auto on/off, I have not touched my controls since I brought my car. I don't notice anything wrong witht the brakes, just a crappy e-brake. I definitely agree that disc brakes should have been offered.

It'* interesting that anyone with SE is not complaining of poor HVAC to the rear. I've ridden in the back of my own car and I'm alway hot in the summer or cold in the winter. Same thing for my dad and my friends.

Interesting, interesting...

not an ex girfriend stalking me, a girlfriend'* ex boyfriend. Guess I have to be a bit better with my sentance structure

and the stealth is for the old kill the lights, swing down a side road then come up behind them a flip wm back on when you're on there *** to scare the crap out of em. But that'* off topic, sorry.

Now that I think of it, some sort of infared feature would have been nice.
And more cupholders, because five up front just isn't enough.

Oh, and I would like to be able to lock my power windows.

As far a ebrake, no complaints about mine, and it does get used for more than just parking
