Engine is able to maintain highway speeds with ease and is very smooth. Seats have good support for longer trips and everything in the cabin is placed very economically.

Still trying to figure out Sync lady though. She's great when she listens, but God forbid your music doesn't have all the meta data filled in correctly! lol.
You only got 33? I got 42 on my second fill-up, 40 on my first. Wasn't really revving the crap out of it though & it was all highway (took it to OC).

This past weekend I got 38 & it was a mix of highway/city.
