The best thing one can say about this
vehicle is that it ALWAYS lived up to
the hype, even in a major accident. I
was hit by a full-size SUV, who ran a
red light at 55 MPH, no skid marks. I
am 6' 7" and I walked away. The car
was totalled, but it did it's job.
The safety cage around the passenger
compartment held completely - not even
a tear in the leather! The roof did
not buckle - with the sunroof open! I
will never own another make of vehicle.
With my height, the steering column
moving up and out of the way for easy
entry/exit was the best!
It was a little slow to downshift, but
I understand that has been corrected
on the newer models.
