Review
The problem isn't the car When the transport drivers "tie down" the car on those delivery trucks, they ratchet the suspension down to its absolute design limits. Then when the truck goes into its bump and roll design limits during the transport, the brand new suspension and steering system is so overstressed from the combination that a brand new car is virtually destroyed. No amount of suspension tweaking will cure it. Every suspension component in a new car, pffft. shot!! I'v driven four of them fresh off the truck. Same problems on F-150's. Follow a transporter on the interstate, will you ever see the cars roll with the truck suspension?
Favorite Features
I had to enter three stars, the survey was blocked unless I entered something. While I have space. The boxer engine. That's the way its supposed to be. Center line torque, no offsets, half shafts and other monkey business. Like Lycoming designed it. That engine is too wimpy. In gusty wind the car needs a rudder. That CVT, is the work of little hairy trolls who live under bridges. Shift shock is needed to assist an attentive participating driver.
Suggested Improvements
Get with the styling, The fits and finishes are superb but the overall picture is a WW II army ambulance.Take a lesson from Volvo seat designs. Those brakes need some vitamins. Deal with that transport issue. The drivers say that they are squashing them onto the trucks to clear bridges, lower wind resistance and keep the cars from bouncing against each other as well as the frame of the truck. Put a l10-12' wheel on the cars, only for transport use. Roll the trucks on and off, deliver the "real wheels? in bulk, stock in dealer inventory , balance and install after delivery. Suspension systems still undamaged. No more excuses.
