Do not lease or buy this mechanical nightmare

Worst car buy in 40 years of driving Transmissions needed repairs at 10000 miles. After 30 minutes of driving seats feel like cement. Unusual sounds around the wheels while driving. That force you to turn up the volume on the radio.

Stylish but Crappy

by Successful Student from Ann Arbor, MI | October 27, 2019

The car is very stylish. However, it suffers in comfort and reliability. The cheaply made underbody means that I have had numerous issues with struts and other related issues. Additionally, on the inside things don’t always line up like they should, and it makes it seem a bit cheap. Additionally, the leather seats are stiff as a board and will literally cause sore spots after 30 minutes of driving (and no, I’m not old, I’m literally 21). It also rides very harshly, not really dampening any small or large bumps well (also correlated to the crappy underbody construction).

This past Saturday, 10/12/19, my 2018 (less than 25,000 miles) left me stranded. Once again, trouble with going into gear. I am driving on the highway, it starts revving, and won't move. I managed to get off of the highway and into a parking lot, thank goodness. Then it wouldn't go into any gear at all - message on dashboard said "conditions not good for changing gears." (Or something to that effect.) This shouldn't be the case for a 2 year old automobile with less than 25,000 miles. Pretty sure I am stuck with a lemon.
