Did a test drive today. They had a "ceramic white" SEL and an "intense blue" SE, both with automatics. I drove the SE. Sweet! Nice quiet ride, great visibility, very responsive steering. I didn't like the CVT; too much hesitation. I would definitely wait for them to find one with a stick. But there was plenty of power once it kicked in...........Please let us know your experience of the test drive .
Congrats!I picked up my "Apple Green" Venue SE with manual transmission today. It is SOOOO sweet! The tech is boggling my mind a bit, but I'm sure I'll figure it all out eventually. If anyone has any questions, fire away!
Oh, as an aside, the salesman told me that I was the FIRST person to purchase a Venue in all of Chicago. Woo Hoo! That's got to count for something!!
Thanks! So far, it's working out great. No noises, very quiet, smooth ride. The only quirk so far is getting used to the Lane Keeping Assistance system. I know I can turn it off, but I kinda like it and want to get used to it. I haven't checked the gas mileage yet, but I'm still getting used to the transmission so I expect that to improve with time. I'll look forward to your test drive post.Congrats on your purchase ! How's it working out ? Gas mileage ? Noises ? Quirks ? We test drove a Galactic Gray SE with the C.V.T. . Very impressed . The new engine has an oil filter cartridge . The '20 Accent and Rios' do too . Not too crazy about that . Going to post of test drive as different topic .
According to the actual paper brochure that I picked up from the dealer, Blind-Spot Collision Warning comes standard on the Denim edition. That is a really cool feature. In fact, it is the only feature that my SE lacks that I wish it had.really liked the accents on the denim Edition but can't find info on whether the denim comes with blind spot monitoring or not which is a feature that the wife wants.
I just finished a 50-mile highway trip to my parent's house for Thanksgiving, and the on-board computer tells me I had a mileage of 40.3 mpg. I have no idea how accurate that is, though. But as long as it's in the ballpark, it is pretty impressive.......Gas mileage ?......
