I have no disappointment because I did a ton of research and test drove a number of Continentals prior to placing my order. However, there are certainly some things that could be changed that would suit me better.
The center screen should be configurable. I think it is silly to waste so much space telling me whose phone is connected, that 911 assist is active, how many bars I have and how much battery is left. I also would like to see the song title and artist shown when the full map is deployed. There is room at the top of the screen. My old MKS really had a better center screen lay-out as far as I am concerned.
The instrument cluster also could use some changes. Why does the speedometer "needle" continue to move and point to nothing even when using the digital speedometer? Seems goofy. I like the digital speedometer but I can't have it if I want the tach and boost gauge.
I think the ride in comfort mode is decent but it is still surprisingly firm. I only put the suspension in sport mode at the dragstrip to keep the front end from lifting so much on take-off but it is way too harsh for me to use on the street. While the car is reasonably quiet, there is still room for improvement in that area.
The transmission tuning really fights with what is a pretty stout engine. The torque management is so obtrusive that the shifts are slow, soft and lazy. I would like to see the shifts firmed up. I was used to my tuned MKS so I am likely spoiled by how beautifully it performed and shifted.
I agree with Twinguin about the mirrors. I prefer to see the actual car in my mirror and not just a light. I prefer the blind-spot mirrors used on cars without the BLIS system. I would be fine to have both the blind-spot mirrors and the light. I will say that with a bit of adjustment, the blind spots can be pretty well eliminated but I do miss the larger blind spot mirrors from my MKS or my wife's Taurus.
Again, all of the things on my wish list were known prior to placing my order. The car's positives do outweigh the negatives for me.
