I would be happy to compare vehicles. I have similar curiosity whether mine is normal. PM me your details.
What I have noticed is the following
- gearbox noisy
- clutch makes clunking noise upon engagement regularly
- when power is in normal, throttle response at low speed is quite bad (I always have power button on for sport mode now)
- when revs drop to 1200rpm the engine blips annoyingly, sometimes causing a clunk in drivetrain
I have never had issues with the steering, but the active steering takes some getting used to. I have never had problems with car stability in the dry, always handles well.
