Top needs adjusting as warning light comes on occasionally. The light goes out when I hit the close button.

General Comments:

I wish that driver side memory seat was an option.

But this car is hilariously quick: 0-60 in 4.5, quarter mile in 13.0 (the same as a Lamborghini Gallardo)!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Have your dealer replace the offending top latch sensor. A cheap fix for your problem. Good luck with your car.
