The car is nice but I am not happy with the drive-by-wire and electronic transmission. The shifting feels erratic and makes the driving experience frustrating at slower shifting speeds. The dealership acknowledge the issue but says there is no "fix". For a Toyota, I'm disappointed and a bit surprised that this would be considered acceptable for release to the consumer. I hope they rectify this soon.
I like the exterior shape. It is sporty and sleek. The chrome around the grill is a nice touch.
I would do away with the drive-by-wire and electronic transmission. While some car makers may think it's the wave of the future, I can speak for more than 1 consumer who are very disappointed in the performance of that technology. Some things are better left alone. If it ain't broke; don't fix it.
