My experience with this car has been both
thrilling and disappointing. My complaint is
that the front end is too low and
scrapes against the speed bumps in my parking
garage. I had a Chrysler Sebring some years ago
that was lower and although there were
scratches on the underbelly it didn't do any
further damage. Unfortunately, the plastic in
this car is inferior and has ripped loose three times
within the last four monthes. First, the
front bumper had to be replaced when the
plastic brackets snapped off at a cost of over $800
to me. The second time, the temperature sensor
came loose and scraped the street until the wires
were stripped bare. It's now happened again!
The drive is exhilarating.
The undercarriage must be redesigned to handle
the stress of scraping the road. The plastic frays
shockingly too readily!
