Thanks!
How would you rate it overall?

Great car, the only negative I've seen is in the shifting. If I had gotten a 2013 it'd be a manual.

I just changed the air filter on my 2012 SE. It is very tight. I had to widen the air cleaner box a touch to slide the solid end of the filter in the slot. Does anyone have any tricks to make this easier?

Sorry about the zombie thread - I'm at about 97k miles and I've already flushed my coolant and I'm about to do the belts and spark plugs, but was wondering if there's any other preventative maintenance that's recommended but not in the manual.

I see a lot of people on other forums recommend changing / cleaning the PCV valve every 100k or so. It looks like this one is underneath a manifold which means replacing gaskets, etc. Unless I'm wrong about the accessibility, that seems like a lot of work for something that isn't malfunctioning at the moment.

Granted, if it does get clogged, you can blow gaskets and cause other problems so it's probably best to be proactive. What are your opinions on changing / cleaning PCV valves or any other components that aren't explicitly mentioned in the manual?
