As an aside I like the blind spot monitoring in the new Corolla, just a little yellow light in the side view mirror. A fairly unobtrusive assist for every day.

Interesting, I was watching later in the evening and they were shifting at 6k, sometimes 5k rpm. Do you know if they went into fuel savings mode with that or if they were nursing a mechanical issue?...

50 years ago Honda was a company that made shitbox scooters. Gotta start somewhere and Hyundai is finally taking steps in the right direction, I'd absolutely test drive a VN vs a CTR.
