Coming from a European sport luxury sedan - I wanted a very nice compact commuter that was enjoyable to drive and got good MPG. $4K off MSRP and a good trade in value sealed the deal.
Its been 12-months and 17K miles. No issues. Dealer has about 14 Titanium's in stock, all have the handling package with the 18" wheels. An option I avoided due to the lower mpg, harsh ride, and high tire replacement cost.
