- Rough ride with sport pkg and needs oil every month and reliability issues
Great driving car. I like it very much compared to my Audi A4 I just traded in. I got it fully loaded so I can talk about everything. I love the large nav screen but its very complicated to operate. I still have no idea how to adjust anything on the radio without going through 2 or 3 levels of computer tourture. Everyone I let drive this car loves the sound the engine makes and how fast it is its unbelieveable to experience like driving a rocket. The car drives great when the roads are smooth but where I live we have many cracked up roads and it makes my kidneys hurt after an hour drive so the ride is definitely tooo harsh. The other problems I encountered were a persistant low level of oil that seems to get burned up too fast. I noticed the door trim was also loose and coming off the post which is something unexpeted in a $45k car. When parked overnight at a friends house, it refused to start the next morning and needed to be towed away which is also unexpected for such a car and a sad sight to see like a child being taken to the hospital! The power seats dont do what I always want and sometimes push me into the wheel and dont stop. I think this is a serious problem. The all wheel drive seems to make strange noises especially when its cold and I turn then it makes the sound of metal on metal grinding noise which the dealer has to fix this week. I also noticed a few rough starts and the idle went boom bumpboom and I thought it was about to stall out then I gave it some gas and it was ok. The rear seat is nonexsistant but the front is very comfortable. The doors close very solidly sounding. The gas goes fast though. I'm not the best in math but I guess its about 15 mpg average between highway and city driving which is mostly highway so its a bit alarming but I hope that goes away when the car is not new and tight. The dealership could be more friendly and I had to wait sometime (2 hours) before I could get a loaner car which I now needed 3 times in 3 months so I hope it wont become a habit. I also noticed the sunroof seemed to not close 100% and a bit of water came in the cabin. Looking at it closer I noticed the glass does not line up and the seals are loose. So other than some quality issues and reliability issues I like the car. I have to see if I still like it after the 3 year lease is up to get another one. Right now I'm not liking the quality and reliabilty issues.
