This is spot on. My Mom asked to borrow my car because she was taking 3 friends somewhere; her A4 can be a little tight for that. Apart from giving her a demo on how to drive the real-life video game that the F10 is, I can't get over my concern for this unacceptable hesitation.

In fact, tonight, I was yielding at an intersection to make a left turn, and in ANY of the cars I've previously owned (BMWs, Audis, Jeeps) I would have stepped on it and cleared the intersection with ease. With the F10, I waited for oncoming cars to pass to be on the safe side. Not cool.
