Ive had this car about 3 weeks now, and im pretty happy overall. The suspension system allows for nice handling, and it seems more agile than the car size implies. The power is decent, but seems like it could use another 20 horses or so. I expected some turbo lag, but its really not as bad as some of the other turbos ive driven.
The car looks and feels as if it should be in the luxury class and seems much better than the Altima 3.5, Camry, and Jetta that i drove.
In the few 3 hour road trips ive taken (90% thruway and highway), i averaged about 24 mpg - much lower than expected. I used regular gas and drove 74 and 64 mph.
This car is too fun to drive making it tough to milk for mpg.
Great handling, funtodrive, good looking, higher class feel, AWD, decent power with minimal turbo lag, can use regular gas, decent sound system, accessories.
Phone sync issues with volume (lost volume control completely), allow for true sport shifting (system overides and will shift automatically close to redline). Manual button visibility and location causes accedental "hits", better mpg and/or expected mpg disclosure, tilt seat control for better seat adjustment capabilities.
