Such an awesome car. I’ve had it for about three months now and have 5,000 miles on it with no issues what-so-ever. This car is fast, comfortable, relatively efficient and hauls the family around well.
I’ve averaged 24.9 MPG in mixed driving with slightly more highway than city driving. The smart cruise control works really well and the car is really comfortable to drive. I wish there were one or two larger storage cubbies for bigger items or large water bottles but it’s also not frustratingly short on storage.
My Santa Cruz handled well in the snow storm we had on stock tires so I’d imagine it would be pretty much unstoppable with all weather/snow tires. I haven’t experienced any issues with it’s drivability or capability.
I don’t love the piano black finishes throughout the interior and wish they would have used a matte or faux aluminum finish instead. It does show dust and finger prints pretty easily but it’s not as bad as I expected. I also wish they would have kept a physical volume knob and physical buttons but again, not quite as frustrating as I expected. Definitely recommend spending some time with it and making sure it won’t drive you bonkers tho!
All in all, I can’t recommend this car enough. My own mom is looking at getting one after seeing mine and how happy I am with it so I have no reservations about recommending this car to anyone!
