This car makes you smile. Every thing from the steering wheel to the window switches seem to have been thought long and hard about.

The finish was also plastic but didn't make you feel like you could not afford a Bentley.

And the Fender sound system is AMAZING.  I hear they did have a special car with a built in guitar jack, that I would love to see.

Would I buy this car? YES.

Leg room is wonderful and cargo space is also huge.  

This is a car you can commute in, go out in and just generally feel good about yourself.

And the price is great!

Listen to our podcast.

The show notes.
