I was expecting a much harsher ride when I purchased the car, but I've been pleasantly surprised. The car feels quite 'alive' as @cbdallas so aptly described it, but remains quite comfortable; in the context of its intended purpose of course. Road noise is much less than I anticipated.
One thing I've noticed. I like to cruise with the windows down whenever possible. When I lower the rear windows, at certain speeds an oscillation occurs that can be very annoying.
