    Beezwax,

    I have a quick one for you. I leased the 2017 Premium back in November. Now that I've had time to put some miles on and get familiar with the car, I am noticing the 8 speed does a lot of hunting, regardless of setting. If I accelerate the car lightly, the tach can run up to almost 3000 rpm before it shifts. If i really boot it, when let up on the gas, the engine revs like you put the car in neutral.

    My 2014 had a little bit of the overrev when you booted it, but not like this one. I've had the car in twice and the dealer claims "normal" operation. Could you do me a favor and try this on your car? Accelerate lightly as if you were in a 35 mph city situation and see what happens to your shift point. I think an aggressive acceleration will overrev like mine, the 6 speed had a little of that as well.

    So far, the 2014 Premium had somewhat better characteristics in terms of performance than this one.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Thanks for the quick reply!
    What did you tint the side windows?
    Oh. Just for the record. The dealership here in Topeka, KS has been great so far.

    Beeswax:
    A few questions, please.
    1. Why 20% tint? Most tint places recommend 35%.
    2. I see members complaining about rear parking assist. My camera works fine, but I never hear any beeps. Should I?
    3. The Window switches seem to be very dimly lit. Can their brightness level be adjusted?

    Thanks muchly for your time.
