Road & Track has a quick update on it's long term MCS tester:

It's funny that a car just about everyone on staff says is tons of fun gets taken on so few trips. Part of the problem is the seven other fine autos in our long-term fleet, many with quite a bit more power. But the main sticking point appears to be its lack of rear-seat space and luggage room if the rear seats aren't folded down.

Another item that keeps people out of the driver's seat is the driver's seat. Many find the seat adjusters too finicky for easy use, while others just can't seem to find a comfortable position, period. But the car is great around town, easy to park. And get it on a back road and you'll think you died and went to go kart heaven, its handling is so sweet.
