Both my cars are the same height roughly - so both give the same impression of speed. However i been car sharing this week and the other car is much lower and it feels like we are travelling at twice the speed.... any one else noticed this?..... it all seems so much slower in the Soul.

you are right my other car is so low that your backside is only 8" above the road and in traffic you can see the wheel nuts on truckslevel with your eyes.

maybe whilst you are down there you could check on the tightness of those nuts...... dont want them coming thru any windscreens......

i like being a bit higher up the driving position was the main reason i bought the soul (still gives me a numb bum after an hour tho dont know why??) but its a lot better and safer to be able to see a bit more ,well it seems that way to me anyway!
