IMHO, I don't think it makes that convincing of an argument in favor of buying a 2011 over a 2010. The only improvements, as stated in the article, are the redesigned exterior and better MPG, the other "perks" already exist in the 2010 model. Typically first year models/re-designs are frought with problems, mostly minor yet still PITA, like the door hinge recall on the 2011. Personally, I would be quite upset if I couldn't close and secure my vehicle. Simply from general observation, no statistical analysis, it seems the 2006 has more than its fair share of posts/problems on this board, another first year re-design.
