I actually recently purchased one, and I'm very happy with it. If you go with the 2.5 route, you'll save a little on gas, but sacrifice a lot of performance. The 3.0i is much faster but you'll eat a little more gas (city). On the highway, they're both pretty comparable to gas mileage. Basically, it's 21 hwy and 15 city. As far as comfort is concerned, it's got everything you'd expect.
