Seems to have a steering response that is way too quick, better turn the traction control off if you plan on stomping on the gas pedal and pulling into the passing lane. As well, you better turn the traction control of if you see someone eyeballing you at the stoplight, or they are going to leave you burning rubber. Factory tires are junk and do not handle water, hydroplanes easy in the rain, Is quite dangerous in fact, this is a 50 mile per hour car in the rain. The steering can correct, but the tail is like a boat out of the water.
Loved the thought of a Corvette engine in a family sedan, hate the fuel mileage. Does the 1/4 mile in about 14 seconds if you can hold the front end straight and stop the tires from squalling. Dual climate control is OK, and the headlights are superb
Take the clunk out of the steering, relocate the cup holders-- get rid of the tin box stereo sound- better interior lighting is a must- upgrade to better leather seating- transmission needs one more gear if fuel mileage is going to become an option
