This is definitely a unique car. It is sure to trigger love and hate among the owners. The good: great interior for such a small car. Great visibility. Mileage is better than epa if you drive it properly. Features galore, like clear roof, paddle shifters, fold flat passenger seat, storage in tailgate, heated cloth seats, heated mirrors, climate control. The bad: suspension needs more travel and needs to be stiffer. Too much roll. Too many thuds when bumps are hit. Automatic/manual trans is both the best and worst feature. I would prefer a straight manual. No spare tire. Premium radio is only so-so.
Nice interior, including a beautiful steering wheel, fabric on the dash, heated comfortable seats and more room than you expect. It is a very nice environment in which to sit.
Fix the suspension, give us the choice of a clutch pedal or improve the shift action. I guess I want the Brabus edition. Run flat tires or a spare tire. Release the service manual already.
