    Nice! My experience with a veloster was interesting to say the least. Met my wife for lunch right after the 500 mile break in on my cat. On the way back to her work I gave her the keys. Her boss was driving behind us in his blue veloster when we stopped at a light. Needless to say, light turned green and the wife floored it, the veloster disappeared. When we parked at her work we saw the veloster limping back into the parking lot. Long story short her boss tried to keep up but blew the turbo in his car. Running joke now is the sound from the cat scared his little turbo and broke it.

    Man I love this car. On a side note, letting the wife drive was probably not the best idea I have had o_O

    The Velosters are cute ... but soooo tiny!! When driving that I'd feel like my butt was dragging the road ... not to mention that I am so tall that I would be folded in half to get in it, LOL! The one I would love to have as a daily driver is a Nissan Juke. I love them ... soooo cute! More economical than most because it is a price point vehicle, gets great gas mileage due to the turbo, and being a small SUV it has a bit more room and is higher off the ground than sedans. Who knows ... I might go get one after I pay Dante off next year.
