    I drove one before.. I’m not cluster phobic but I felt it with this car. It has little power and be real careful going into turns, can’t go too fast. The car is really light and can easily roll over. I was really scared when I rented one of these and was going a decent speed to turn off of a highway.. apparently it wasn’t slow enough.. luckily I adjusted well and slowed down enough not to drive on 2 wheels instead of 4. If you like room in your car and good handling.. this is not the car for you.
