Rag top in the snow belt

ReviewA great year-round car. With snows on in winter drivability is excellent - we get 100" of snow a year. The top is very well insulated & quiet. On any sunny day above 55 degrees I have the top down. The wind screen does a great job of keeping the cabin serene and the heated seats keep you warm, that way you can focus on the excellent exhaust note. Mileage is good at 24MPG and 27MPG highway. This is a cruiser-not a sports car. Performance is adequate, not stellar. High speed cruising is addictive and one can blast to high speed and beyond without realizing it, even with the top down - It's that well designed. I targeted this car specifically over the new model as this one is designed by Bruno Sacco.
Best FeaturesConvertible top. Batmobile design of rear deck. The car gets a lot of stares.
Worst FeaturesA better seat would help. The new model is better at that. Also, a mechanism that hands you the seatbelt, it's a long reach, new model has that too and bland stying to boot!
