The car is actually fun to drive.
Transmission is very responsive – no
annoying downshifts. The engine is a
bit noisy. Steering is CRISP; virtually
no body roll; tight turning radius;
very good road feedback. The car
handles well at highway speeds. Two
words on brakes – be gentle, or you’ll
warp your front rotors in no time.
Already had two recalls: faulty crank
shaft sensor and defective rims – the
dealer took care of both problems and
have done an excellent job. One major
complaint: the metal under the hood
(supporting brackets, heat shields,
wire harness brackets, etc) had started
to corrode. Mileage is very good – I
get consistent 33-34 miles/gallon.
