Driver's seat rocks back and forth. Dealer claims this is "normal".
Warped front brake rotors. Replaced under warranty.
Rattle in dashboard. Dealer has repeatedly attempted to repair. Still rattling.
The car is beautiful inside and out.
The engine has wonderful torque and power.
All-wheel-drive grip is phenomenal.
Steering feedback is excellent.
Safe and secure.
Driven at 8/10ths the car provides absolutely effortless speed.
Dealer service is awful.
Long term quality is horrible.
Suspension is soft and squishy. The car wallows and bounces. Understeer is terrible.
Transmission shifter throw is about as long as a bus, and less precise.
Brakes are overboosted, grabby, and soft.
Seats are too wide and not securely mounted.
The car is very heavy, and feels like it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
