Went to dealership. Said rock chip caused peeling, won't cover repair. I have had Toyotas before, under the same driving conditions for 4 yrs without this problem. Also, 1st gear is geared too high, have to rev engine or slip clutch to take off. Also, console storage and cup holders are not as usable as my 04 Corolla. Gear shifter hits cup in cupholder when shifting into 2nd, 4th or reverse.
Exterior body style and 5 speed prevents excessive shifting when using cruise.
Improve paint quality and durability, adjust console spacing for 5 speed, and have adjustable cup holders.
