This car shines on the highway. I love that the 6spd isn't constantly down shifting on every little hill and the engine has plenty of torque to climb and pass. Very comfortable even after many miles behind the wheel. Very low ambient noise makes driving a pleasure. Averaged over 27 mpg with the cruise set between 80-85 with a load of kid college junk and three passengers. Bugs do love this car. I spent an hour cleaning them up this morning. One minor issue was my thumb drive full of music. I get random skips and dropouts when playing the thumb drive.
