A few minutes? No. The 30 seconds, or so, that it takes for the RPM's to drop a bit? Yes.

Really? Well then, it's not really insurance, if they don't even *try* to bring the car back to original condition. Wow.

Because I wanted an affordable, sporty, RWD sedan. Neither Toyota or Honda offer one.

The (slightly) upgraded interior is nice, too.

(Rolls eyes) I've never had a side mirror damaged ever in my life. You can keep your silly motors and unnecessary weight and complexity.

I've never had a car that didn't read a little too high. Even more so, of course, after it's been sitting in the Sun.

The computer is still doing the shifting, in manual mode. The reason it's jerky is that manual mode in the 8-speed is with a locked torque converter, by design. More "sporty" but less smooth. It's a...

Dealer is no help

My dealer refused to work with my TireRack-sourced sensors, installed in my new wheels. My plan is to go elsewhere and have them "woken up", but I haven't gotten around to it, yet.

I turn off my compressor for the last mile, so it's not parked with a cold coil. Never had a problem.

Maybe shining into the eyes of everyone you encounter doesn't "harm" them, but it isn't cool, either.

IMO the older dual-LED headlights are better-looking than the single headlights of the newer cars. I can't understand how the bumper is different enough to be worth swapping, either.

Not worth it. A lot of money for no performance gain. Inferior gauges. Inferior front design. Inferior brake pads. Inferior wheels (staggered setup increases understeer).

The heated seats on my 2014 are plenty warm, and can be felt almost immediately.
Again, not an "F sport".

Or is "F sport" just "assumed" around here?

I must say, never before have I owned a car that seemed so delicate. I avoid touching anything on the interior, besides, or course, some of the controls.
