We have the LT, but even the LS has lots of goodies for the price. Features not even mentioned include speed sensitive windshield wipers, traction control included if you get the ABS brakes (option), nicely tinted windows, and a drivers information display on the speedo.
In the world of look-alike cars, it's hard to find something distinctive. It's different enough from the Cruiser to be unique, and not like anything else. The retro look appealed to me. I'm tired of the "organic" look of most cars today.
Would like to see memory options for the power accessories and a power passenger seat.
