Well, after reading the one report, I'm out. I've had two vehicles on my very short list; both are now no longer. I recently took my Hyundai in for a recall item and looked at the new Sonata. Other than CAFE standards, is there a point at which car makers (Hyundai and Kia especially) will stop lowering the roof line? Caretaker isn't getting any younger and the thought of shoe-horning myself down into a car each time I need to go for a drive is totally unacceptable. In the case of the CX-3, the author made a point to highlight the cramped nature of the cabin. And while I'm not looking for rear leg room, I am of the belief that if you can't put two adults in the back of a car, then get rid of the back seats. Put a futon back there or something useful like extending the cargo room. If I want a two seater, then I'll buy a Miata (or whatever it is called now). I guess the CX-5 has vaulted back up to the top again. I was hoping for something with a shorter hood. I'm very disappointed in the car after reading the article you posted.
Live it up: There will be plenty of time to be old when you die.
