The only thing that constantly bothers me is the climate control. It has been in the shop 4 times and every time the "fix" it, it works for a month than stops working properly again. It cannot control the temperature. You have to manually adjust the fan speed and temperature to get what you want. The other thing that went wrong was the throttle body. Something went wrong and the RPM's would skyrocket then drop, and this would repeat. shutting it down and restarting would not help. The car had to be towed and fixed. Otherwise, the original Michelin tires were horrible. I just replaced them with Dunlop Sport A2's and these are the best tires that I had so far. I took a 25mph turn at 60mph in wet weather and the car did not skid at all!! If you want true performance out of a sport luxury, get the Dunlop Sport A2's.
Love the car. Great Acceleration and fast. My max was 135mph in a 1/4 starting it at 55mph (this was with use of the sport shift).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
