I won't lie, this is one of the best all around cars I've ever driven for it's price point.  Powerful, quick, handles well for such a big car, spacious, good build quality (I do hate the glovebox though), decent gas mileage for what it is (24 mpg highway if you keep your foot out of it...good luck with that though). 

You do have to be aware of where you are (or set the cruise).  There was a number of times the first couple of months that I owned it where I looked down and went "Holy shit, how am I doing 95 mph?".  It's just really comfortable at speed.  I like it.
