I've had the car for a little over a year and I still find excuses to run errands just so I can drive it. I love this car. While I did grind 2nd gear occassionally, I figured it was more user error than anything. The seats are great, steering wheel firm, transmission precise and handling amazing. I wasn't a big fan of hatchback designs but this grew on me. You have to drive it to appreciate it. I've taken it on the canyon twisties along with a buddies S2000 and it kept up quite well (probably would've kept up even better if the stock tires didn't stink).
Seats, climate controls, transmission, top-end acceleration, handling... too many more to name.
The biggest flaw are the tires. Michelin needs to take these back to the drawing board. No grip and they wear quick. I'll accidentally chirp my tires at some stops because of the lack of grip. Others include slight exhaust rattle, no heated seats, a lot of shifting (expected), gas mileage
