I've been scooting down Hamilton's notoriously tight, and frequently one way streets for the past couple of days. The Accent means the end of 3 point turns - it literally turns on a dime if you should happen to find yourself, er, well, needing to suddenly be facing the opposite way.
I took it to 'work' at CHCH TV. I've adapted easily to going from being a larger vehicle (my van) to being one of the smallest in this sub-compact. I passed a lumbering wide- load model home thing the other day, something I couldn't do in the van. Size matters, all right.
At about 6'3", I was also interested to know what he thought of interior head and leg room. His pronouncement? "Great city car! This thing handles beautifully! It's really only 10 grand?" When you can get a car snob to happily pose for the camera, and re-enter the building shaking his head and exclaiming, "man, that thing is fun!", you've made progress.
Tonight, we pack for the cottage.
