"Mechanically the best car you can buy (gas or electric)"4.0 starson by techie1234
Pros: FAST, quiet, smooth, plenty of power, google maps, nice rear view camera, active air suspension option is fantastic, 17" display/control is great, front seat is very comfortable and adjusts plenty to suit my needs, flush door handles.
Cons: PIcky but if I'm paying 100K for a car, I want these things... see summary for full list of cons.
Summary: From a purely mechanical and car-enthusiast point of view - this car is AWESOME. But if you're going to use this car for everyday driving and especially if you have kids in there all the time, then some of the con's need consideration. Maybe some of the con's will be addressed in a second iteration, whenever that may be.
Cons: no door pocket, no proximity sensors (useful when parallel parking), no adaptive cruise control, no seat back pockets, minimalist front central console (I have lots of junk in my car and need somewhere to put it all), no adaptive cruise control, no spare tire (they say modern tires are good enough not to need a spare - but I'm skeptical), no trailer hitch option (there is an aftermarket one but it hangs very low - I use this for my bike rack), no retractable rear shade, the turn signal on the left of the steering wheel feels low (I'm sure one would get used to it though), no heated or AC seats.
Oh, and one more pro: if enough of us go electric we can tell the middle east to go fly a kite - we don't need your stinking oil.
Thanks for your submission!
