Excellent Build quality, lacks mid range torque, say above 45mph, not enough kick when asked,
however low end is fine and improves greatly when tap shift manual mode is used.
Biggest complaint is overly firm seats and no adjustment for lower back, (always trying to back it off but default sticks out way too far, should be able to adjust to make it flat. Also if you try and raise the seat up it wants to scissor closed, Germanys revenge perhaps? I do get alot of compliments on the exterior design, was asked if that was a Audi the other day.
Manual tap shift mode. Excellent Air Conditioning.
Navigation, XM radio. USB for music and the HD for recording as well.
Improve seat quality, and driver position.
Better mid range torque.
One year update. Car has been trouble free and has more get up and go than I first thought. Drove to festival 30 miles one way on some nice winding country paved roads yesterday and really was able to test out the sport mode interactive driving and it was great fun. Navigation works great also, telling you exactly what you need to know to get to your destination.
Updating my review, I agree with the Be Careful review.
Car just doesnt respond at times when you press on
the gas pedal, transmission issues or what, not sure
but almost got clipped turning left the other day, scary.
I hope there is a fix for this, anybody else aware of this
problem please let it be known and what possibly can
be done. Thanks.
