I like it and have other secure system, they can sit in my car enjoy the music, but never can drive it away!!!
I was waiting for someone to say that. My hand was still free. If the door would have just unlocked for me.
Lots of people like to hate on Consumer Reports because they are not an "enthusiast magazine", but I think they have their place. They actually buy their own cars and do their own tests, as opposed to publications who get cars sent to them from manufacturers for review.
The Miata fits the classic definition of what a "sports car" is. Most cars nowadays should be called performance cars instead of sport cars. For an enlightening read, check this out:
So how is the jeep's handling/feel compared to the CX-5? Is it fun to drive?
Will never buy a Jeep product every again had the Grand Cherokee Overland and it was falling apart and spent more time at the stealership than in my driveway. Got rid of it after 2 years

My jeep cherokee 4.0 went over 150K before the tranny went out. The engine was still going strong though. I couldn't get a loan for 4k to fix the jeep, but they offered me 15K for a new car. That's when I bought my protege5.
Not all jeeps are junk. Mine was near bulletproof. I didn't exactly take it easy on the thing either...I was 20 something and we have 4x4 trails all around here. There's something to be said about a body-on-frame true 4wd vehicle. They're good in a different way than something that comfortably goes around corners and gets good commuter mileage. The jeep I had did neither of those things well, but it was a great, FUN car to have.

The 9 speed transmission does feel a little jerky sometimes as many people complain. I experienced it today when I really got on it. Punched it and when I let off it downshifted and kind of jerked a bit trying to figure out which gear to slow to. I doubt many soccer moms would ever notice but an aggressive driver like me will experience it. It's not awful or disconcerting...But it is strange.
It does have Sport mode which I think engages all 4 wheels as it's part of the AWD selector. I'll try that out next.
Overall I do like it. Hate the Infotainment though as I've said a million times. You can arrange the icons a little which is why I think it earns high praise from reviewers. You can change the background screen to a few different choices. That's cool. iT SOUNDS GREAT.
The backup system is nice. It doesn't have cross traffic radar which I didn't realize I'd miss.
It has that stupid chrome around the window, which I hate. And is it just me or does it not quite lineup correctly?
Oh, and I said there were like 5 trim levels. I double checked. There's freaking 8! Ridiculous.
