I really wanted to like this thing, I really did

So this is my “compact” rental for the week. A bright red 2020 Challenger with 2500 miles and temporary tags.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a cool looking car and I appreciate it has decent pep, is quite striking ([mustang joke]), and has a surprisingly large trunk.

However....

The visibility is terrible.

The steering is twitchy on the highway.

UConnect always defaults to the radio if you were on bluetooth.

The proximity door unlock feels dimwitted and slow.

The trunk is hard to open.

The wiper controls are on the wrong stalk.

And the headlights suuuuuuuck.

Not saying it is a bad car... just maybe not the best rental car haha.
