This is supposed to be a "driver's car", right?

If I can get over this, and the MFT/Sync and 6 speed transmission issues, and the unavailability of Sirius on a non-MFT SEL, I could be a buyer. That is a bit to get over, though.
It is simplified by lighting with ENGINE OIL CHANGE SOON at 5% of the oil life remains, and OIL CHANGE REQUIRED at 0%.

As for the transmission, many initial concerns were simply customers getting used to the dual-clutch, which has different sounds and sensations than a basic automatic.

I hope that eases your worries.
