I agree the car is very well thought out. I have had cars with automatic brights and with automatic rain-sensing wipers and they were operated mechanically so they stayed however you left them. I...

I hope for your sake that it is correct but I am afraid that it is not.
I picked mine up at the Performance center on 5/30 and it did read a 500+ cruising range. It also showed an average speed that...
