Driving slow, 30-35 mph. Opened the BAMR all the way and the whop-whop-whop noise was so loud I had to pull over do to air turbulence. Incredibly loud and distracting, to the point of painful. Wondering if the ANC was trying to compensate and making it worse. In any case it's intolerable. This is not present in my 2009 (at least not to this degree).
Revell audio is too tinny. Set the bass and mid to full up. Helped. Not impressed (mine has THX and I prefer mine over the 2016). Sirus locks in faster, my 09 has to take a second or two and then announces the channel number for each channel change. Not a big deal, but a pet pieve.
Cabin is MUCH quieter. Car is also smoother and more responsive. Great acceleration. 3.7l. Very powerful. Car holds the road in tight turn very nicely. Very satisifted with handling characteristics. Power and control are excellent.
Controls are confusing, too many menus. Takes my eyes off road to read too long.
Too many controls stacked on stalks. Kept hitting the rear wiper when trying to wash windshield. Definitely minus.
Seats are very comfortable. Not happy with seat cooling, 2009 better.
Black interior hot in sun, prefer my sand color.
Very, very responsive driving, sporty. Brakes will put your nose on the windshield. Much better than my 09, but, prefer a little more foot travel to, ummm, "ease" the brakes on slower. Perhaps TOO responsive.
Some others complain about dirt buildup at bottom of doors. I checked and there is indeed a layer of dirt at the bottom of the doors. I would be inclined to clean this area more often.
Backup camera had a redish or pinkish tint. Made it more difficult to see clearly. All around warning system VERY accurate and VERY nice feature. Still have to turn and look however. Technology only can see so much. Nice supplement when getting into tight space. Screen color and clarity need work however, especially when considering today's optical standards.
Car did not have a SD card so I could not use the navigation system.
Phone synced easily.
Like being able to fold mirrors when driving. I pull close to mailbox and manually fold my mirror to get close. Being able to fold electrically is handy, not to mention convenient when raining.
At grocery store, car refused to start, claiming there was no IA key inside car. In fact it was in my pocket. Had to remove from pocket before car seen the FOB.
On a scale of 5 stars, I would rate at 4.7.
