Great Vehicle, Minor Flaws

ReviewI have had this car for almost 3 months now, and am very pleased with it. I average 31.3mpg with about 60/40 mix of city/highway driving. I really love driving this vehicle, and its very agile and easy to park. I'm 6'-3" and it still has plenty of room and is easy to get in and out of. Lumbar adjust is useless and obstructed by center console. TIP--If you notice that your engine does not turn off at stop lights, turn your window defroster off. The tilt wheel has very limited range adjustment upward. The mpg is great and varies only slightly between highway & city. UHAUL makes a drill-free hitch for this vehicle and it is useful for a needed hitch-hauler cargo carrier for trips.
Best FeaturesSynch with cell phone, moonroof, navigation, dvd player, jukebox radio feature, radio weather & movie guide, and the ultra deep center console with bin removed, and separate driver/ passenger climate controls, nice aluminum wheel design.
Worst FeaturesThe driver lumbar adjustment is hard to adjust and does not appear to make any difference. Also, the body panels do not fit properly at the rear bumper skin (lifted on one end) and rear hatch (not centered and leaves a big gap on one side). This reflects poor wormanship on a very expensive vehicle.
