Summary:

You can have serious fun with this car

Faults:

Needed tire alignment.

Replace wipers.

Horn seems to be very weak.

General Comments:

Car is extremely fun to drive.

Incredible amount of low-end torque.

The automatic shifting has enough variation to match what you like.

Nothing else like it, even the corvette I tested it against.

The interior is quite nice, not as nice as a 5 Series or A6, but almost as good as my G35.

Never boring and always exciting.

Got it up to 120mph for a short time, and it had a very solid response.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
