After one year, this car is fine

There are many things I love about this car, its engine, 6 speed, wheels and handling. It is also comfortable and quiet on trips. It is very reliable, with no problems over the past year. In fact, it feels like a mini-Acura TL-S Type. My one complaint is the gas mileage. I can only get about 32 at highway speeds and that's if I keep it at 70 and below. Not an easy thing to do in this car because speed comes on quickly and keeps climbing. its easy to do 90 MPH. Love the interior but hate that you can only get black interior. It is very hot in a car with so much glass. It also shows lint like crazy. Radio is good too.
VTEC engine, 6 speed tranny, brakes, seats, steering wheel feel. Engine sound when accelerating is a rush, but VTEC kicks in late, it needs to kick in at 5000.
VTEC needs to kick in at 5000 RPM, add fog lights as standard. How about beige or red seats instead of black? Keyless entry would be nice too.
