1. Biggest issue - there is a fairly large flat / discolored spot in the paint on the front bumper. Didn't see it until the car was at home in direct sunlight. 

2. One FWD is a bit droopy - it doesn't open as high as the other

3. I tried opening one of the FWD while standing it front of it to demonstrate to my wife they won't cause injury and have sensors. It didn't sense me. It literally knocked my backward.

i know i've already asked this sometime in the past, but what kind of kludge did tesla come up with for their gullwing* doors? is it just that they're all electric? my recollection is there was some component in the delorean doors that had to be cryogenically treated or something for it to work okay and not either fly upward or sag down.

they're not hydraulically assisted, so in the absence of power, you have to lift the entire weight of the door

they fold at a second hinge in the middle at the same time as going upwards, which reduces the amount of space required for them to open or something

it also adds a new point of articulation and apparently means that you can't just counterbalance them with a gas strut so if the motors fail you need to lift like 80 pounds to get them open

personally i love how they make the whole "doesn't need as much lateral space to open as a regular car door!!!" thing into a huge deal as if every parking lot on the planet isn't designed around normal car doors, while ignoring that oops you suddenly need 8 feet of vertical clearance in any garage

you know what else doesn't need as much lateral space as a regular car door, and can be operated by a child even in the total absence of electrical power? a sliding door like a minivan.

i would absolutely drive a minivan if you could still get one that was small-ish. like the size of an original honda odyssey from the 90s or a mazda5. all the current minivans on the us market are like, fuckin, full size vans, not mini at all.

i understand that you can still get compact mpvs in japan. i wonder how bad the import duties ar

in korea kia sells the sedona (carnival) with a 4th row of seating that folds down into the trunk. seating for 11!
