ReviewReading the other reviews,I wonder if I was sold a completely different car. First,the seats are so deeply contoured that the left bolster interferes with comfortable shifting. My leg goes to sleep after about 30 minutes. If I get the steering wheel in a comfortable place, I can no longer see the instrument panel. The shifter is sloppy and the clutch has no definite point of engagement. The upper gear ratios are so close that it is hard to tell which gear I am in. Combined with that is the fact that 1st gear is so tall that I am at redline not much above 20 mph.
Best FeaturesIt does, however, have a nice sound system.
Worst FeaturesDo not allow anyone who has owned a real performance car to buy this one. The car ploughs in turns with noticable understeer. With the autolock feature implemented when I want to exit the car, I have to pull the handle twice.
