2009 curb weight is 3543, 2007 is 3515, and the 2006 brochure doesn't list a weight.

I have a hard time believing the 5th gens only added 83lbs when they are taller, wider, and longer by quite a bit than their predecessors...
Man - 3 years into the model and still this... the 09 is 56.1" high, 68.1" wide, and 185" long. The 2010+ is 59.3" high, 71.7" wide, and 186.4" long - not that much bigger. Also - consider this - the curb weight listed for cars assumes a full tank of gas - the fuel tank in the 2010+ is 18.5 gal, and the fuel tank in the 4th gen is 16.9gal - so the difference in curb weight of the actual car, sans fuel, is around 10lbs less than the difference in reported curb weights... (the 4th gen carries 102.6lbs and the 5th gen carries 112.4lbs)
