My car was having some work and I was lucky enough to get a 2019 ASpec.... I can say this is a very nice car... the most notable... the exhaust sound. Its luck bassy but not too much but a bit of rumble in the floor... when you gas it its not too much.. I like it.

Sterring is bit tighter.... over all very impressed.. I can see how this would be a great daily driver.

How high speed? Not in excess of the local speed limit 😇
If this is a loaner, they may not have addressed all issues as they would with a final delivery to a paying customer.

Actually I've never brought this up but yes - that's one of the things that I first noticed with my 2018. At highway speeds I can definitely see the hood vibrating as if the intake of air below the hood is trying to lift the hood up. It bothers me a bit but after two years now, I'm used to it. I too would be interested to hear from others if they've noticed the same thing.

Yeah I noticed it on my 19 V6 tech. It's interesting but it's probably be design. Maybe they lightened the hood a bit since 2015.

I also find the ASpec get a bit less MPG than my car... on a long highway run I get about 34+ MPG... the ASpec was about 28.-30. The prince one pays for being "sporty".

If I recall correctly they reduced the MPG ratings across the board for the 2018 and newer generation models.

Another note, not sure if its related to the ASpec or just newer models... in my 2015... when I set something like the fan to auto... next time I got into the fan setting, auto is still highlighted... in the ASpec setting to auto is highlighted but going back into the fan control - even though still in auto mode, the auto was NOT highlighted. This is very odd and misleading. Wonder why the change from the earlier models. (Same with air flow indicator.)
