How well is the car equipped? Mine sat around a lot before being leased by the first owner, then again before I bought it. There weren't any problems with it, but it's not that well equipped, having only the premium package 1 and Keyless-GO for options. Doesn't even have HID headlamps. That made for a good price for me, but the dealer didn't make much if any money on it.
A prepurchase inspection by an independent mechanic is always a Good Idea, and there are plenty in the Houston area to choose from. Assuming it passes, and the equipment you're looking for is there, grab it and go.
"Engineered like no other car in the world." That's both a bug and a feature.
