I was really happy with mine until last Sunday when someone backed into it in a parking lot and dented both driver's side doors.

Had an awesome drive up Mt Baker afterwards that helped get my mind off the dents. Still not quite the same as the Mustang in corners, but it sure stuck to the road and was very responsive/maneuverable.

The DCT transmission has only got better with time so far. The first day I drove I found it unnerving to pull into traffic as it would bog off the line and shift too early (<2000). Now it's completely different, nice and responsive off the line and shifts between 2500 and 3500 for my normal driving.

Even the MFT has been running acceptably ... it rebooted once the day I picked the car up, but has been flawless since.
