    Drove a tC today, they brought them to the University to exploit douchey frat brahs with well to do families. Nice looking, I drove a white one. They're rated at 180hp. Initial lurch was pretty quick, but I didn't get in it. Of course it was an automatic with the tiptronic tranny. I was doin about 35 and kicked it up into 5th, cruisin along, went to downshift to accelerate and accidentally knocked it up and was surprised as shit to find it went into 6th. The entire time though, I couldn't help but feel really claustrophobic. It was fucking tiny. It made my Civic feel like a monster inside. Windshield was small, roof was low, so low I didn't even get to enjoy the glasstop unless I looked straight up. I really don't think theres any way I could ever own one because it was so small. Overall, I like the power but that's about it. Next thing I wanna test drive is a CRZ, I wonder if a dealership would let me...

    Cliffs:
    Powerful
    Meh handling
    6 speed auto
    Glass top
    TINY AS FUCK

    I'm 5'8 120. I didn't know the seat could go down, I was looking at 1g's after driving that one, they look like they're so much bigger inside than the one I drove.

    Really, that's strange. I think a lot of it had to do with how high the windows were and how small the windshield was.
