Fun car to drive. Good handling and decent acceleration from anywhere except a stand still. Now for the horror: I have replaced 10 tires in 3 years. The car is not designed properly for the low profile tires that came with the car. I purchased a warranty on all tires from a national tire chain after the fourth $200 tire I purchased. Now I am swapping them out at $25 a pop on a regular basis. Annoying. Maintenance is expensive. Only other major problem is the discoloration of the strips that run across the roof of the car (along the top of the door). Very expensive to replace and after many letters to the company still no answer on why the body discolors on at $35k car after 3 years.
Fun to drive when tires are not flat. Great seats. Unique styling.
Fix the tire problem. Two buttons for locking/unlocking the doors. Add a locking gas cap lock. Add a trunk release from the inside of the car. Turning radius is poor. Focus on customer service. Pitiful for a luxury brand.
