Mine is quick and responsive like you describe... most of the time. Some days, however, it seems a little slower to get up and go. Kind of like its owner... Perhaps performance could be influenced by the weather or the adaptive transmission.

LEts talk about all our cars! Share your opinions on how you like them when they are driving, performance wise. Believe me, mine pulls hard past 80! It could cruise at 80 all day long with just a slight touch, basically I just rest my foot and not even push it to keep it that way, slight touch and it pushes you in your seat and off it goes to 90+ in no time. 80-100 comes in slightly less than 5 sec.

Share your opinions on your car's performance and how nice they are to drive lol
