The 'Bird is the Word!

ReviewI love my 'bird! (So does my wife.) I
have a Pacific Coast Roadster that is
out of this world. She now has over
600 miles in 1 week, all from just
cruising around. I have never heard of
a car that gets as many comments as
my 'bird - everyone loves this car!
Like driving a classic with the safety,
reliability, & features of new. The PCR
is the '04 limited edition model and
the only 'bird you can get with a light
dash instead of black, which was a big
factor in our decision. Only 1000 made,
so not too common. Color very classy.
Gas mileage good for a V8. Get both
tops: ragtop-only costs double(!) to
insure. You WILL be seen in this car!
Best FeaturesLooks! Handling! Comments! 2-seater! Coolness factor! Uncommon! Heated seats! Wonderful handling - turns very flat and predictable. Tiny turning radius - the 'bird will do a u-turn in 2½ lanes. Soaks up big bumps. Can talk in a normal voice (not yell) with the top down.
Worst FeaturesHarsh on the little bumps, but I suspect the tires are over inflated, apparently a common problem. Acceleration is quick, but not what I expect for 280 ponies. Check build quality - we rejected the first PCR we saw. Soft top's tight. Allow regular gas.
