Ours is a 2017 base model w/o all the newest technology and gadgets that can go wrong in the future. I have this point of view because I've never owned a car w/ lane departure, blind spot monitoring, automatic brake sensing etc, etc. When one gets older, change is more difficult to accept. Been just fine all these years paying attention and just driving the car. As far as the steering setting...I tried out the "sport" mode and found the steering did change to a somewhat heavier feel. (Went back to the normal and I'm leaving it that way.) What the car really needs is better tires! I do although think the back up sonar is a good idea but if one pays attention (w/the back up screen and looking out your side-view mirrors) is this even really necessary? Oh how the world is changing...give me simple and a personal/human interaction with a sense of community.
