General Comments:

This is one seriously fun little car!

Light and nimble, the Manx handles like a dream come true on the road and can go places off road that would simply amaze you.

The car also gets tons of attention from little kids, to the most stuffy senior citizens. You will get miles of smiles when you take this funny little car out for a cruise!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
