If you really want to get the max out of the engine you've got to just hammer the throttle because of the way it's mapped. But once you do you can get up to speed pretty nicely. I've only had the car for 300 miles but I love it. I opted out of the fancier trims and went with all the fancy options. Leather, winter, sunroof. I ended up paying 20k for a car that comes better equipped than a 30k one. I'm sure I'll have to eventually haggle the dealer about rock chips and paint, since I've got a sun roof I've got to watch for those stains everyone is talking about and the rattling headliner. I've already got to take it in for the whistling door mirror. But those are all minor and things the dealer has to fix (idk about the paint though). But it's my first car I've bought with my own money and I wouldn't have anything else.
A se Better equipped then then a ti?lol wishful thinking huh?
