I saw a Sonic Blue one at the dealer the other day but I didn't have time to go look at it. As usual, the sonic blue was hot... but of course I still didnt see the interior, which is the part I'm withholding judgment on!

I personally like the fact that you can now fit 20oz bottles in the door. SO that makes 4 places for your 20oz :)

Did they fix the way you can't fit a large Dunkin Donuts cup in either of the front central cupholders!? Mine it bumps into the radio surround part of the dash, so I usually have to put the cup in the cupholder in back, and take it out when I get where I'm going (no drinking in the car, I'd spill it all over myself)... that was a major design flaw in the 00-04 MYs...

Gosh, I have like never used the cup holders really. lol.. you are gonna laugh at me, but I always stick my cups and water bottles snuggly between the seat and the emergency brake pull handle in the console. Large cups fit nice and snug and I can keep a better eye on my drinks!! haha

Yes Urn, I was also waiting to read some bashing... haven't yet I guess!!!
Can't wait myself, to see one in person!!!!

I saw my first one today, as well. Was driving through a dealership, and it was sitting near a 04/05 F-150. The exterior didn't look bad, for a sedan. The interior looks much more adult, but it definitely lost much of the character I bought my car for. Probably be more popular, though.

I think it was the CEO of Toyota who said: "There is a reason vanilla is the highest selling ice cream flavor in the world."

People are bland.
