    So frustrating. Especially at intersections where you know the green light tends to run short.

    It's interesting that the difference between a courteous, heads up reminder honk, and an aggressive, "YOU IDIOT!!! Death to you and your family!" honk can be measured in fractions of a second. I confess to having administered a few of the latter.

    I seem to regularly behind the person in the turn lane who isn’t paying attention and then once alerted manage to be the last car though the light before turning red.

    Was it a white Crown Vic? If so, I hate you.

    I've been driving a gray Chrysler 300 C for about 12 years. Have been thinking of replacing it with a Porsche Macan S.

    Excellent choice. Wish I could be driving one sooner but thinking about getting a few more miles out of my 300. Please return and report once the honeymoon is over.

    Dude, you have been driving a Chrysler for 12 years. I think you have suffered enough.

    I don't think the honeymoon will end. I can't think of a single thing about the car that bugs me. Love it.

    At this point you might want to wait until the 2019s hit the dealerships. Some body redesign and a bigger touchscreen.

    Got enough buttons & switches on the console? Do you have to do a walk-around before firing it up?

    It might end the first time it breaks down after the warranty lapses. I got rid of my bimmer after having it go to the shop three times in three months for separate issues.

    But it is a nice car. Hopefully you got it with vibrating/massaging seats

    CarPlay... very nice!

    If you haven't already get the Waze app. It is now nicely integrated with CarPlay and will help warn you about all those damn potholes you have in Utah County.

    CarPlay is the greatest thing ever. Not sure I will ever buy another car without it.

    Waze better than google maps? I doubt it. I should give it a try.

    3-yr lease and the annual service is pre-paid.

    No massage feature, but it does have both a heating and cooling feature. Most comfortable seats I have ever had in a car.

    Google owns Waze. It is very useful esp. in congested areas.

    Yeah, any time JL drives I-15 he should be using Waze... it can tell him that he is screwed and there are no alternate routes.

    Yeah, Toyota lost my business because of CarPlay... that and the lack of a diesel option. I am now a happy owner of a ZR2 instead of TRD Pro. CarPlay rocks.

    Smart.

    Cooling seats are awesome. I’ll never buy another car on Houston without them. This past summer was sooo much better with them in my new car.
