I drive this car in a congested city
every day. It is perfect in traffic.
I always feel "comfortable" with my
speeds and I have a tendency to go over
the speed limit, but it holds the
curves good. I drive occassionly on a
65 mph highway and before I know it,
I`m up to 75 and 80 mph, without
feeling any scary moments. The only
time I get concerned is on those "draw
bridge grids". The tires may not be
wide enough. The one thing that I
absolutely can`t stand is the ice-cold
air does not come on soon enough.
I "melt" down before the air is cold.
At least 10 blocks to get cool air.
Evidently there is NOT enough
insulation. Thank you.
I can get into ANY parking space that I
want to or I can make my own. I still
have a dollar left in my wallet AFTER I
fill the gas tank and drive 300 miles!
I have trouble getting into Low riding
cars, but this one is easier than
getting in and out of a Cadillac!
The steering wheel is too far away.
I`m 5`7" and need the space for my legs
and then my arms don`t reach. My arms
get tired. The "position changing" on
the steering column is a bitch to get
changed. It isn`t easy getting my feet
in without rubbing the top of my leg.
