Anyone read the comments in the Autoblog post about this? Actually just like every other Autoblog (or any car-centric blog) article about CR-Z it seems that overwhelming majority of readers only go for extremes - the car either has to have 5 second 0-60 or 60+ MPG or room for 15, or better yet - all of the above. Otherwise - it's an utter failure and a disgrace to the automotive industry. Bah.

8 second to 60 is not bad, 40MPG is not bad, hybrid that corners and weighs under 3K lbs and comes with a 6-speed? It's plenty and it's the reason why it's a COTY in its home market - those guys appreciate efficiency.

Very well stated, Zoltiz! However, you forgot one other thing-- the nay-sayers want ALL of those things and a sticker price of under $15,000! :pP: Here is what I think about them: :trolls: I've been waiting SO long to use that smiley, thanks for the opportunity!

Autoblog comments are disapointing unless the car featured is an exotic and even then you never know what you'll get.

The CRZ gets lots of respect and admiration from non car people and us - the people who own them. The so called experts on the internet have no idea how much car theyre missing out on. More for us I say.

I stopped reading autoblog comments because its always the same people blasting or loving a car they have never driven. It's a bunch of retards. They think if a honda doesn't have a k20, its garbage.:rolleyes:
