So far so great

This is a great vehicle that allowed me the full blown feature packed vehicle I wanted for the price I could afford. It's been pretty great for the 600km I have driven it for. With the hills and hwy (Vancouver BC) and slushy rainy sunny weather we have had since I got this thing, it handles very well, although I have not put it to any real heavy duty testing as it's just a baby, lol.
5 speed auto shift.
1.) When in (D) transmission should shift into 1st gear when in heavy slow moving traffic (a very slow roll). It seems to stay into 2nd (or 3rd) & tends to hesitate a slight bit during slow acceleration. This goes away if using the semi manual mode 2.) more adjustments for seat angle
