I traded a 2011 Optima Turbo and don't miss the 270hp at all.
The diesel torque is Fantasitic for spirited driving.
My mileage has been around 39 mpg with A/C.
The trip computer is off by as much as 4 mpg.
I have 2000 miles on it and filled up 5 times.
DSG can make your passengers feel ill because it is Jerky/seems confused when you first start out.
Make sure to have all people in the car for test drive.
Otherwise, the car has plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Backseat has actually more legroom than you realize by looking at it.... the footwells in the front are so deep you can easily move the seats up and still have room for the folks up front and back.
Navigation seems to work fine.
NO issues like the below person stated.
I also don't have the RDS issues that was stated below.
Bluetooth works great once connected.
Gas mileage is fantastic for spirited driving like mine.
The radio controls take some getting used to.
Typical German engineers never make anything easy to use.
They seem to think we are all technically gifted.
It is very deceiving because when you look at the radio it looks very clean and easy to use...not so much.
However, once you master the issues it no longer is a problem.
DSG needs improvement when cold.
The car "bucks" when going slow like the tranny is confused.
Starting in "S" mode helps a little.
Maybe mimmicking a stick is what makes driving such fun....just not for passengers.
