The only consistent negatives I read about the new gen is the DCT and MFT issues otherwise it's a very good car for the money.

inexpensive base price, well equipped for also a decent price, nice power/torque for the gas mileage, safe and cheap to insure. and it's built solid and comes in a bunch of color combinations. not much of a surprise, but cool info

Subtract the DCT and MFT and it's a great car from my experiences.

I've had very little issues with mft, actually no issues. I've had my iphone 5 stop playing music over Bluetooth (after the song finished) but I think were talking about iphone issue there. Glad I got the navigation, very responsive, no more garmin waiting to connect to satellite...arrive at destination then it connects....or constant recalculating....
