Newbie: Deposit on 2013

I just put a deposit down on a "lightly used" 2013 1lt.

I drove one in my recent trip to vegas, and instantly fell in love. I have been seeing a lot of different postings around the top, which has be a little concerned, but seems like 2013 has been a better year.

Any input on what I should look for on the car before I take delivery, would be great. Thanks!

2013 supposedly have the "normal" top problems fixed.

Pull the trigger.

I have had one problem with the convertible top on mine, but it appears to have been a fluke or isolated incident. I haven't had any of the "normal" top issues yet, but I only have 1200 miles on her. Good luck.

Go for it ! I have a early run 2011 and had the top replaced but I still have a permagrin every time I get behind the wheel. You won't regret it !

It's not a joke, but it certainly should be.
A unicorn bumper-guard is an equally important mod.

Wake up in the middle of the night wondering if you locked it. Or pinch yourself when you see the awesomeness of your new chariot in the driveway!

Makes no sense at all?? A catch can should have been factory on the sludge factory under the good.
