This car is such an amazing and fun ride, sure you blow your hair back and look good doing it! I was hesitant to buy this AWD machine at first, but couldn't be more happy that I did.
Story
The best story I have was from my first drive from the dealership lot. We took my car right up the Santa Cruz, CA coast and didn't stop for about 6 hours. I wanted to get very acquainted with this car right away and it was definitely the best impromptu road trip I have ever taken.
Pros
If you hit the pedal, this thing goes, and goes fast it does! The steering is as a tight as you can get and outperforms my old Porsche 911. And no, I am not kidding! This machine is extremely stylish with a nice, low stance that gives it a bit of a "sleeper" look, as you wouldn't expect this much performance out of a $30k car!
Cons
The only negative I can think of is the stock material of the rear seats, as they seem a tad "low rent" for what I would've expected. Considering how much this has it where it counts, this small CON is easily overlooked.

Its aftermarket tuning potential is near limitless in terms of performance upgrades. It also has a ton of choices for customization in order to make each owners one unique.
Story
A track tour I had at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL was one of my most memorable stories. I had never been to the track before and a local road race club had an open house at the track. I went with some friends and listen to them explain an overview of how their organization and race season worked. Afterwards, they took us in groups of 5 or 6 and lets us tour the track at speed. It was e... (more)
Pros
The handling, the braking, the aftermarket tuning potential, the safety rating.
Cons
Interior build quality, technical service bulletins/recalls, active center differential pump
