What a head turner

What is great-Hands down the drive is the BEST. This car is so much fun. Rarely a day passes when I am not asked what it is. The ride is surprisingly good for such a small car and being low to the ground. The exhaust package sounds great! Occasionally you get a mini backfire and it makes me smile. Fit and finish is very good. The top operation is so simple, flawless, and quick. The microphone is surprisingly accurate and head rest speakers are a big plus. What is good (but could be better)-Overall the six speed is extremely smooth, occasionally downshifting to first can be difficult. Engine oil with the correct certifications can be difficult to find. Lastly the car has plenty of power, unfortunately it is not distributed evenly. So you will need more gas to get going than what you would expect. The Bose sound system is plenty loud, but the sound quality is sadly flat and the Bose system dont not have speed sensitive sound (that actually works). What needs improvement- The technology in the car feels dated. Here are some examples: The Infotainment system and navigation can be a little slow. Key-less entry requires a physical button press on the handle, rather than simply unlocking when you grab the door. Backup camera resolution is is not great or maybe it is the screen. Lane departure system is not an option. Windows lack auto up switch. Lastly, although it is quieter than the Miata, there is a lot of noise at highway speeds. Overall I have absolutely no regrets. I enjoy this car every single day. I have no doubt I will own this car until it falls a part.
