Feels more expensive than it is, still... a few bugs

2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Fully loaded CX5 GT AWD is fun to drive and feels higher lux than you'd expect. 19" wheels give a stiffer ride than I hoped - Mazda should offer 18"s I think as an option. Since April 2012, 28 MPG city. Need to carefully modulate gas pedal to optimize performance without slipping into passing gear, but even so, good accelleration. Overall, nice. Problems: A/C fuse blown at purchase - blew warm air at idle- Fixed. Noticed a gear slip, momentary RPM redline, and "clunk" when engaging passing gear at highway speeds - Not Fixed yet. Ordered rear sensing system - beeps constantly in Reverse - Not Fixed yet. Could use better TomTom nav controls (zoom lock) and a constant compass readout somewhere.
Style/appearance inside and out, comfortable, fuel economy, Bose stereo.
Reclining/sliding rear seats, rear AC vent, all power window controls have LED's instead of just drivers window for nighttime visibility, 18" wheel with highway tires option for smoother ride, paint protection, front license plate frame, ambient lighting, a little more power and less tendency to shift into passing gear at full accelleration.
