- The Look!...Sits low. Sleek. Engine sounds impressive
- Would have paid a little more for a better sound system
Purchased As New
Picked up my new car on Monday. The dealer was only provided a Black automatic with Red bolsters.
Pros: The overall look of the car is sleek and beautiful. Sits low, Came with black and chrome wheels. Never really had a chance to shake it's legs yet but will do so on the highway tomorrow (Thursday June 06). In the little run that I had (about a 100 miles), was amazed with the way it picked up speed. Gear changes are smooth but rapid. The engine sounds impressive. Would have preferred a manual but not sure when I would get one. Just wanted to drive it, could not wait! The automatic does have paddle shifters.
Cons: Would have preferred a better sound system but do understand the competitive pricing of the car may have resulted in some compromises. The Pioneer system is decent but would have paid more for an upgrade. Will enquire if I can.
For now, I plan to burn the tank of gas this weekend. (Just testing the consumption figures, that's all :-)...)
