After 2 years I still enjoy driving this car and have no regrets about the purchase. Build quality is good; my only complaint is an annoying and difficult-to-pin-down buzzing/rattling from the vicinity of the glovebox. That being said, it's a great car. The gearbox is a little finicky and temperamental. Turbo lag is apparent but partially mitigated with a Cobb AP. I personally think it's part of the fun. There are little things that could be improved but -none- of them would prevent me from buying the car again! It's not the fastest car out there but very few can haul all your gear, get you to-and-from the mountains, make you grin on the on-ramps, and get 24-25 mpg mixed city/hwy.
-Fast (enough). -Safe. -Reasonably good gas mileage (21-22 pure city, 27-29 hwy, real life driving.) -Cargo space. -Looks. -Availability of aftermarket parts.
-Requires premium fuel -Momo steering wheel is solid but too big for the twisties -Smoother gearbox -Stereo sounds lackluster -Tuning dial design stinks! -Beefier brakes -More robust A/C -Front defroster ought not automatically turn on A/C compressor.
