I can say that this is the worst vehicle [bought brand new] that I have ever had. Maybe I am saying this because it was a big disappointment in many areas, especially because I had long term (10+ years) expectations.
The engine is powerful at 273 HP and the vehicle is very fast from 0 to 60 but due to a flawed VCM system the powertrain is not smooth at all. it vibrates between 1200 - 1500 rpm with a subble vibration/characteristic rumble that gets old really fast. At city speeds (stop/go traffic) driving this vehicle is a nightmare with a very jerky trans (ie When coming to a stop and the trans reduces to 2nd and 1st you really feel it as if you are slamming the brakes, not smooth at all). I didnt like this vehicle when taking turns (hot) either, it always felt very unstable; highway speeds? Exactly the same negative experience, very unstable and never felt safe getting it over a certain speed (that should not be mentioned here)
The rear suspension is very noisy and after 10k miles started clunking a bit, specially in cold days. The brakes were very squeaky at the beginning and got better with time but on certain days I would feel the noise when coming to a stop and starting the car again.
The interior design is ok, I like it, sort of, but the quality of the materials is not the best. The road noise is so-so.The NAV is very very slow and it does not convey the idea that this vechicle was built in 2012; it is almost atari like in terms of resolution, very slow in responsiness and not very user friendly.
The reliability is excellent, if you dont count all these problems that I have mentioned [design problems].
I visited the dealerships several times and they always played the normal specs card so had to dump it.Shame on me that I didnt do my homework properly before the purchase of this vehicle. It all resulting in losing considerable money in the process
