The engine willingly revs over 3000RPM. The 6 speed manual is excellent, shifts are easy and precise. Acceleration is good for a largish sedan
Sticks to the road around corners, always predictable with good road feel through the steering wheel. Body lean is well controlled without being harsh over the big bumps
I have only had problems with the rear brake rotors over 3 years and 44000 miles. They were turned at around 20k miles due to pulsing, and I replaced them at 40000 miles due to pulsing. That is as good as it gets for any car I've ever owned.
