Side mirror camera is terribly blurry!!! You can't rely on it AT ALL, specially at night or rainy day. (Dealer refuse to accept the problem) The rear shocks feel weak and odd. For fast charge, you need install 220v outlet at home. Interior space is good compare to other electric

I like and don't like this car. Compared to the Volt we picked the Clarity due to the nicer interior and better seating for 5, or so I thought. The first time we used it with 5 full size people the legroom was fine however the people in the rear

Twice the car has shifted on its own from drive into low going 55mph, smelled burning rubber, and even after a restart, it would not go back into drive gear. Once a dash check engine light and garage said nothing wrong with that light showing up after checking it out.
