Quiet and comfrotable, but several simple downsides

2010 Dodge Avenger R/T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I've been using this rental for several weeks. Overall comfortable and quiet, but:
The trunk lid, with it's spoiler, is very heavy and requires both hands free to lift it. The high lip of the trunk combined with the long rear window means that loading the trunk is limited to small things. The hood release is very poorly located and was broken by a previous user, but my left foot caught constantly on that lever on exiting the car. The A/C frequently required turning the fan to full to get it to kick in. Once working it could cool very well at 60 mph, but became an oven at traffic lights.
Quiet. Not a lot of road noise.
Transmission was often rough shifting at stops. Once my daughter thought someone had hit us.
