Very nice but sometimes does not drive smooth
December 4, 2018
My 3.5L with SH-AWD is comfortable, looks very nice, and has a powerful engine. The 2-screen infotainment system is excellent. ELS system great. However, the ride can be very frustrating in that the transmission sometimes is slow to shift, and sometimes seems to be shifting for no reason. Not a quality ride. This mainly happens when starting from a stand still or going slow speeds, or when up and down low elevations. Car does not exhibit this awkward behavior on the highway. It's excellent and powerful on the highway. So my advice is to test drive this in traffic and under slow conditions.
Otherwise, really like the car - it's really an excellent car other than these drive train issues. Overall because of drive train issues wish I did not buy the car.
