But the Cascada comes standard with 20" wheels, and they say that like it's a good thing. Well if you're in the Gran Prix races, I'm sure it's a good thing, but I like a comfortable ride. They don't even mention smaller optional wheels (although I'm sure I could get them if I pay someone to go to the Chevy dealer and get them there.
(It also has "sport-tuned suspension" I don't want that either, but I suspect it's not like a violin that you can retune to something else.
It also comes with a black top, no other choice given. Don't these designers ever drive the cars they design? It's like the charge-card email notifications all over again. (I had two convertibles with black tops. When the second one needed a new top, I changed to green, to match the turquoise car, which was imo primarily green, and it was much better. Since then I've had tan, a rather light version of tan.)
I suppose if I order the card before it's built, I can get a tan top, and they probably "won't charge me much extra", but any negotiation on the price will be over.
I've never bought a new car, but the idea was to get what I wanted, not what I don't want. For $35,000 dollars, which I gather is not much these days, but they don't offer to let me spend more and get what I want.
**and indeed it will be possible to get a 7-year old car like I like, but v. hard I think to get a 3, 4, or 5 year old car, because they stopped making Sebrings, Solara convertibles, and maybe only Mustangs are left.
Any other new or late model American convertibles bigger than a Miata for sale these days?? At least as big as a mustang.
