    Bought a Sonic

    RS.



    Wasn't a fan of the Sonic, until the wife and I started shopping and driving them. (It's her car) Pretty sweet little ride!

    It's a lot of fun to drive. Handles well and rides smooth.

    It's not exactly what I'm used to these days.

    I'm thoroughly impressed with the car (by that I mean I love it). What really sold us was the amount of cool features bundled into the thing.

    Sonic is somewhere in between the 98 inch wheelbase '77 Toyota I was given as my first "beater" and the 101 inch wheelbase Mazda Protege I bought after college. I'm a tall guy, but could fit in some small cars so I don't write them off totally.

    I like the exterior styling fine, but the instrumentation is a little too experimental for my tastes.

    I dig the sonic RS. You re wife sounds cool.

    The instrument pod rocks....and I like the styling touches such as the pod headlights as well.

    Best of luck with the new ride.

    Post more photos hen you can.

    I think the sonic rS is a nice lifestyle vehicle.
