Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The sexy look of the car, inside and out.
Cons: The cup holder, or lack thereof...only flaw at all I've found in the car.
Advice: Drive it, you'll fall in love.Well after weeks of searching, researching and test driving cars...I met my dream car! I'm totally in fell in love at first sight. Saw, drove and leased this car within an hour and have never looked back. I get stopped 2 or 3 times a day asking about the car plus a gazillion head turns. I was lucky to find out they offer great lease specials on this car...if you think you can't afford it, look again. I did and I'm glad.
Pros: Outside looks
Cons: poor visibility from the driver's dseat
Advice: Good luck getting the price downWhat an interesting cockpit! Lots of bells and whistles I've never seen, but beyond that, it feels tight and like I was in a cave. That's not such a bad thing--it feels good. The only downside is visibility. Backing up this vehicle is an exercise in faith that no one is behind you. You feel as if you are in the back seat. The rear of the car is within touching distance, but the nose is far out in front of you--reminiscent of an XK-E. Windows are short to the point where you feel you're looking up when looking out. Performance is more than adequate. The car drives smoothly and has a substantial amount of pep with its manual 6 speed. I haven't driven a stick for awhile, and when I accidentally shifted from 1st to 4th, the car took it without protest--very short throw. Cornering was a dream, truly. It just flows around the corners and begs you to go a little faster. I didn't buy it. For some reason tha car didn't say 'Buy me!' with enough conviction. They do want a premium for it, so you;ll have to fight hard to get the price down. No doubt about it, though. It's a beautiful car.
Pros: the entire look of this vehicle
Cons: the blind spots
Advice: Make sure you test drive in all conditions (parking, backing up, passing, changing lanes) to confirm if lack of visibility is a problem for you.This car is just beautiful! You have to see it in person. The interior is very comfortable -watch out though if your tall - it has 2 inches less headroom than the 350Z. But on the other hand, PLENTY of leg room! (I'm 5'10' and had plenty of room) The consoule was somewhat cheap - could of splurged on a better quality material but the chrome finish is attractive. I drove an AT - very good pick up as well as cornered well. It has more of a luxury ride than a tight sport suspension feel. 2 flaws - radio display has very low illumination - can not see in daylight and the bigger flaw - extremely bad blind spots. Because of the design (which is sweet!!!) of the back end - visibility is very minimal. That will be my deciding factor.
