Not trying to be critical, or excessively hard on you , but most of your points of dissatisfaction are really on you, not the fault of your SS. Point 1 may have some legitimacy, as no one likes down time or inconvenience due to recalls. Point 2, without further explanation or details, is a reiteration of Point 1. All the rest is a matter of tastes and preferences. Such as, attracting attention; if you don't want attention or to be noticed, dont pick a vehicle that screams "look at me". Get a Camry instead. And (some other people might hold an opinion different from mine, but) I question the wisdom of an open cockpit vehicle and weather/ temperature concerns and residence in Michigan. Just saying. IMHO, a SS makes a lot more sense where i live in Florida, than it does in Michigan. Overall, i hope you end up with a vehicle choice you can be happy with.
