Found myself shifting the trans to "Sport" mode because in drive mode it shifts like a granny and is unresponsive; it short shifts into 2nd gear when under moderate to heavy throttle.
In regular mode off the line, this car feels like a prius.
It is slow to accelerate and short-shifts every gear.
When trying to pass, the transmission takes too long to respond.
I would not buy this car.
