This is a fun car to drive if you don't have a family/kids. You will feel everything about the road, but that's what makes driving this car enjoyable. The convertible top is pretty easy to use, but beware: you will have no trunk/storage space when the top is down.
This car is a blast to drive. I've owned a 2007 & 2008. Not many people know this but when you purchased this car new they had a dealer installed option. It was a larger Borg Warner Turbo giving you 300hp vs 260hp standard in the Red Line. My 2008 had that upgrade and the difference is night and day! I raced a new Mustang 5.0 V8 and we were dead even. His eyes were as big as a Frisbee! I just sold mine because some guy made me an offer I couldn't refuse. It was red w/red leather, perfect. Now I'm kicking myself.
The only drawback on this car is they should of provided a bigger trunk to actually "take" this fun car somewhere. Maybe an overnight bag at best.

Overall its a good vehicle for fuel economy and fun to drive. The back seat is basically for looks, not sure what you may fit back there, but it won't be much. If your looking for a good little vehicle for work or are single then this vehicle will work great for you.
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
