Pros Cons
Performance in handling around curves and braking. No leather seats - too expensive an option - should be standard.
High quality & performance of the car Navigation: horrible interface, directionals; hit cruise wheel base by mistake
Design - beautiful vehicle to look at and drive Rear styling: hit grocery car on trunk when shutting more than once.
Excellent interior controls & sound system Acceleration from stop - not enough power or torque.
The technology package can't get better or more convenient Low mpg: poor fuel efficiency
Automatic dimming rear view mirror provides great visibility. Operations booklet: very difficult to understand settings etc.
The rain sensing wipers are great. Awkard placement of turn signal below steering wheel adjustment lever
New sportier look with led lights Easy to confuse cruise control level for turn signal
How well it defrosts & defogs interior glass Tires - are very noisy especially when moving slow
Visibility in changing lanes - can see from all directions Headlights are not as good as bixenons.
