The sports package tires and rims do not meet the rough roads (potholes,etc.). Expect out of pocket costs (new tires/new rims )potentially after 25,000 miles. Out of pocket costs could near $3,000. Also, three recalls to date, which are not what I expected in a $60k vehicle. Cupholders are terrible!!!
Drive acceleration is superb....handling is awesome!! Gas mileage better than expected.
Assess tire/rim issues on sports package. Maybe adjust tire weight and tire size standards. Cupholder positioning needs to be assessed.
