As long as the host doesn't have a huge belly, a primary-colored outfit, and starts with "Welcome to KQED, we're glad to have you with us..."

that was a stupid review. they didn't push the car or test braking, 0-60, quarter mile, or mpg. They didn't show the orange one, and barely showed kermit. They just lightly revved the engine and that was it. Retarded, at least they showed the silver, storm, green, tiny bit of yellow. I was dissappointed. No new info or real third party test results. Even if they did, they had the softy red one with touring. Now i have to wait until R&T or whoever comes out with their review. Next month? God only knows.

shay,
I don't know what you guys expected! The motorweek segment was done the week of the press launch, they had 9 million other journalists there at the same time, no way would they be able to get the car for an in depth road test, only people that did were Automobile who had the car all day on that Friday.

Motorweek is a broad based general car show, certainly can't expect them to do exhaustive tests on this car which is going to have a tiny market here.

The fact that it was another in the growing pile of very positive reviews and they did show the car on the track was great to see.

Chris
