The vehicle has been perfect for my needs; I commute daily and also enjoy performance driving at the track. I kept the vehicle in stock form and it has not given me any grief or issues. A coolant leak that occurred was handled promptly by dealer under warranty, and that has been the only reliability issue for the past 68K miles. This vehicle exceed my expectations in terms of reliability, versatility and fun factor.
Steering and handling is truly the best I have experienced. Its dual mode suspension is very well matched to my city and track driving. And its cargo space has been more than sufficient for my needs.
A more performance oriented version of this vehicle without increasing its price would be a superb deal in my opinion.
