I bought mine with a stick shift, brand new, and except for routine maintenance and one battery replacement in 7 years (with a car which is parked outside at an airport parking lot for a week at a time), have had NO problems. I get it serviced regularly. The seats are wonderful - 6 hour drives are now a breeze when they used to kill me in my Accord, and it handles great! I would buy another one!
Incredibly comfortable, supportive seats and terrific brakes.
Adjustable intermittent wiper speeds, different position for cup holders and some dash buttons.
