I gave 5 stars too... 3 years ago! The styling is cool, awesome sunroof, decent cargo and passenger room and... well... that's about it. 2 brake switch replacements* (recently recalled), less than expected gas mileage, squeeks and rattles and lately the transmission is reving too high. I have no faith that this rather expensive model will last me the 10 years I was hoping for. It might be a hard sale once the warranty expires!
*when the brake switch blows, the car is completely dead. I know things happen but I shouldn't have to see my car being towed on a flat bed twice while making car payments.
I have had the same problem.
Just a work around so you don't need to get towed again.
If you push the start button twice, with your foot on the brake until the light is green and then hold the start button for 15 seconds it will override the brake switch and start the vehicle.
