I think the review was pretty fair. The negatives they pointed out were all objectively true - yes, it is harder to see out of than the run-of-the-mill teardrop-mobile; yes, there is a performance penalty due to extra weight; yes, it does use up more trunk space (although I never understood why golf bags were the gold standard). But they also give it a coupe nods for the suspension (as well as a favorable comparison to the Main Enemy, Ford), they like the lines it has with the top up. In spite of the BMW love affair, they didn't even contradict Chevy where the Camaro was compared to the 3-series. About the only stand-out negative opinion I saw was calling the steering "lifeless," but compared to some it may be - then again I don't spend my days on a slalom course so it doesn't matter much. About the only target of any real negativity was "Jersey Shore," and of course that's totally deserved.
"jersey shore" reference makes good copy,however,c&d must believe only "air heads" read their reviews if they insist upon mentioning the show!..just sayin!

I'm also about to purchase the 2LT RS and was wondering about the convertible top.
I noticed in the showroom that when the top is up you see a lot of the impressions of the ribbing throughout the top. It's not very smooth.
Did yours look like that also and is it bothersome to you?

Judy, just my 2 cents but I really don't care what the top looks like. I just don't want it to get holes after 6 weeks of ownership nor have the new one wear out also. Along with a pool on the rear floorboards. Would I buy another one today knowing all the problems that I have encountered in my 3 months of ownership. HELL NO!

I agree with birdible, until GM guarantees (100% money back) that the top issues are resolved I would not buy.
