One more thing, is driving without side mirrors a problem? I would think the blind spots would become enormous.


The only complaints that I may have are...shifter is notchy (but already don't even notice it), Door Panels scratch easily and the lack of cruise control. The fit and finish (besides the door panels) is excellent! No rattles/squeaks etc. Very quiet all around. I was very impressed (obviously, I bought it ), but it is not a Mercedes by any means. As previously mentioned, I do wish it ran with a lower RPM at highway speeds. Overall, I highly recommend the vehicle for a commuter.

I purchased a small convex mirror for inside the window on the drivers side. Hopefully that will take care of my blind spot on the left side. I am already use to the lack of miiror on the passenger side (the Xtiva didn't have one), so that shouldn't be too much of an issue. If I don't see any MPG improvements at speed, they will go back on. I assume I will get something because they are HUGE!
