What a fun car to drive! Only problems are minor,
and peculiar to convertibles (this is my first). For
instance, the shoulder belt is hard to get to when
the door is closed, and the inside rearview mirror
view out of the tiny rear window is ... well, tiny.
Also, there's a huge blind spot for the driver off the
right and left rear sides in the back seat, where the
convertible top blocks a lot of the view. It's hard to
change lanes, sometimes, or to pull out into traffic
and be confident you can see oncoming traffic.
Other than this, it's a great car. We bought it used,
a year ago, and have gone through one
Pennsylvania winter so far, no problems.
Driving this car with the top down is guaranteed to
make you feel better. Seriously. We've had a rough
year (cancer), and having this car has been a great
lift for the spriits.
