I LOVE my car!
Bought used in 2013 and 2 months later took a trip from No. KY to TN and then on to LA and then back.
For the first leg of the trip, I filled before leaving home, went about 150 miles to pick up Dad, then on to TN another 250.
All up and down hills, and ONE tank of fuel!
I was speechless!
Yes, that transmission takes a little to get used to.
Thought something was wrong with it UNTIL I read the owner's manual.
You just have to LISTEN to the shifting to get it right.
If you accelerate moderately, you won't get that jerky feeling.
I could not be happier with it.
I drive over 100 miles a day and gas mileage is great.
Started with 23K miles and now over 65K on it.
Love the speedy transmission.
Once you get used to it, it really can do amazing things! Also, that Traction/Stability/Slide control.
When turned off, you will fishtail in gravel.
With it on, it drives like a dream.
I can't think of any, except enlarging the back seat so passengers are more comfy.
