I have not owned a convertible since I was a teenager. This car really takes you back. It is so comfortable to ride in short or long trips. We took it on a trip from Austin to Shreveport, LA. Got great gas mileage, the ride was very comfortable. We only made one stop...bathroom break. We were not tired when we arrived at our destination. We take it on week-end trips often. It just hugs the road. My husband always wants to take "the little car", as he calls it.
