Well your test-drive will tell you if it has "enough power" for your needs... Durability of that engine shouldn't be a problem, but I doubt you'll be running any track days in it! It is a large car, so if you want it to jump off the line you may want to think about a GT or 3.6R. If you just want a point A to point B daily driver, the 2.5i may be the right car for you.

As for helping you pick a new car, that's impossible for us unless you tell us what you need from it... Are you in a snowy climate, cause then AWD is a HUGE plus... manual/automatic? Do you want fun to drive or good fuel economy? Etc etc. Plenty of opinions on here, but they're completely uninformed unless we know what you are looking for...

And obviously you'll get more/better opinions if this gets moved into the 5th Gen forum, or the Other cars vs. Legacy forum or the pre-purchase buying questions forum...
