Nice but not quite there yet. (dual clutch auto) sedan

2011 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
The car is very quiet,even on the highway.
The engine could use more power/pep.
The car inside and out is very stylish.
The fit and finish could use some fine tuning.
Also, visor extenders when using visors on the side would be a nice touch.
Better/nicer quality weather stripping all over esp on the doors wold be nice...Also a heaver black molding instead of soft rubber where the hood meets the windshield would be nice,
these items feel like they will not hold up well with the items used.
Nice looking car...wonderful suspension, Very quiet Drive and Ride...Love the available SYNC features.
Fix the pillar insulation hanging into the engine compartment.
The transmission (dual clutch auto) is a little jerky in some stop and go traffice and makes the car very slow off the line and refuses to downshift swiftly.
The dash can be bright/shiny in bright sun.
The radio/sync controls can be a bit confusing.
The engine needs just a bit more power (having to hit 5000 everytime you want decent power is frustrating).
Also, having to get larger option packages to get a nicer stereo or cruise/sync is frustrating..please make more available in white exterior color.
Also, please get rid of the strange piping/striping on the cloth seats.
Better quality weatherstripping on the doors.
