I had on for a year, it is a great car but I didn't trust it enough to keep it out of warranty.
The transmission is annoying around town or in traffic. The engine is absolutely fantastic. It is a thirsty beast, my best tank ever was 17 mpg, my real world average, commuting on the highway with little traffic was closer to 15 mpg. The big V-10 has an appetite for special oil too, oh and tires.
