The car works just fine. I find one "funky" feature and that is the electric power steering. If the engine turns off at all stoplights then the power steering cannot be the normal hydraulic type. I think the electric steering assist is jumpy and not nearly as satisfying as the hydraulic kind. This is my only objection to the car. Otherwise it is a great car,
I like the styling, the gas economy, and the fact that it looks like a real car and not a nutty little pushed up car like the Toyota.
Other than the power steering improvement, I can think of none.
