* Our small city garage looked too small for this baby. Honestly we didn't even try it, but we know we have 10" to give with the garage, so we didn't want to risk harming the test drive car.
* Compared to our Prius, this was a gas guzzler. I know, I know, pretty much anything compared to a Prius is a gas guzzler. And while the GM tour guide made a snide remark about those of us with Toyotas not caring about style, I will say that after 9 years of sipping gas, it is a very hard habit to break. Wallet & environment > style.
The car also had rear view camera assistance and almost no view from the rear window, meaning that we *had* to rely on the camera assistance. OMG, this is soooo hard to get use to. But after a week we did. In fact, there are moments when I think, "Oh, I wish I had that camera!" The beauty of the rear camera is that when you are backing out of a parking spot, it shows you the trajectory you are moving in and if there is anything in your path.
Would I buy this car? Maybe. I'm not a power-car gal, so the fact that we could go zero-to-superfast in a blink of an eye is not a selling point for me. But if it is for you, then check this car out. Full disclosure: My husband and daughter were super sad to see the car go back to GM. They really liked it.
