Not a bad article. I like how he described getting into the car as "like sneaking into your bedroom window after curfew". I don't agree with his statement that the gearbox has a bolt-action feel. Maybe the bolt-action of a worn out 100 year old Enfield that has had 100k rounds put throught it.

I clicked on foxnews.com at work to check the headlines and saw the elise :)
I thought it was a very good writeup...That is the color I ordered too (but with black interior)....

A car review written by an idiot.


"Short and wide, the Elise has a widemouthed, big-eyed face combined with the figure of Kim Kardashian to make for a car that looks a lot like, well, Kim Kardashian."

I had the same opinion about the shifting when I first got my Elise. It felt really clunky and rough...I got used to it.

Good article. I pretty much agree with the writers points. Great driving car with some poor fit and finish here and there.

Maybe.

FoxNews should stick to poor political reporting. rotfl
At least he didn't report that it pulls to the right...;)

I thought it was a typically favorable and accurate review with some nice turns of phrase. Kudos to our little Socialist owned and built car! :clap:

At least they had the right color combination.

I think it's complimentary. I quite like Kim Kardashian. Well her figure anyway, but nothing else really.
