Overall, I am pleased with this car and would recommend it to others. However, there are both pros and cons. Let me list them and you can decide for yourself.
1) The sports-tuned suspension on the T5 AWD is a bit harsh/jarring over bumps. I test drove the FWD version and did not notice this.
2) mild vibration from passenger side seat over bumps. Not noticed when someone is sitting in the seat.
3) narrow/deep glove box and small door pockets.
1) crisp, precise steering. 2) lively acceleration 3) strong brakes 4) premium audio sound is amazing - I really wanted a powerful, clear stereo and got it 5)aluminum center console is both beautiful and easy to use - this feature really drew me to the car in the first place
