    I was in a car the other day and accidentally hit the window lock button while cleaning it. I could only roll up the drivers window and not the back 2 or even the front passenger when using the drivers switches. I've never seen that before, could get annoying if you have kids and want to use your windows.
    I find it annoying that when you unlock the car with the keyfob that it locks itself if you don't open the door soon enough. I get why they made it like that but it would be nice to be able to turn that feature off.
    I also don't like how the factory uses a tiny oil filter and over tightens them making it pretty much impossible to get off with bare hands.

    I think this can be changed. I don't have access to the Owner's Manual but I believe it can be found there.

    Page 5-13 of my manual describes changing this but says to see a dealer. Sorry.

    Have you thought about getting a cable for programming?

    I haven't considered it. If I owned one I might. I know the one driver with the high mileage car would sure appreciate having cruise in his car!

    The weird carpet. Dirt sticks to it easily, and I'm not really sure how to clean it (other than vacuuming).

    1) Handling/steering of the pre-2017 cars.

    I think Mitsu could have avoided a lot of criticism of the car if they had done it right in the first place. Not that the 2017 is a sports car, but the 2017 G4 sedan I drove was noticeably less wallowy in the corners, and the EPS hack they used to "fix" the sticky steering doesn't solve the root problem, but the end result is acceptable from a driver's perspective.

    2) Base MSRP in Canada & the U.S.

    I think they should have gone with a lower price instead of always piling on the rebates. The G4 sedan should have challenged the Versa sedan for "cheapest car in America". As we've seen in both the U.S. & Canada, Nissan has gone for the "cheapest" title, and they dominate the segment.

    P.S. related thread...

    I used to think this way until it was pointed out to me what purpose the rebates serve. They act as a built-in down payment so no cash is coming out of the customer's pocket when they sign the paperwork. It makes financing a car like this at the low end of the market MUCH easier.

    As far as the bank is concerned you are not buying a $12,395 car with no down payment, you are buying a $13,895 car with a $1500 down payment (the rebate). Making it seem as though you have some skin in the game is something they like to see.

    It's actually pretty smart.
