This is the worst driving new car I've ever had. Above 60 it requires constant adjusting to keep it in the lane. Steering is super sensitive, it will begin to wander, when you try to correct it, it will over compensate and you go too far the other way. Trying to get it stabilized in a straight line is very difficult. Wind affects it tremendously, a danger to drive in high winds. And a danger at speeds over 60.
