2006 Lotus Elise User Reviews

- No trim specified for this review
- Amazing looks, very quick, exotic appeal. Ride is more comfortable than I thought.
- Bumpy, squeeky and rattly on rough roads. shifter is a little clunky, entry and exit are difficult.
Don't bring this car on a fine dining date. Your date's high heels will do a lot of damage to the thick, plastic door sill. This car is amazing to drive. It gives an instant adreneline rush and the steering, though feel is not as good as a BMW M3 or a MINI; is very precise. The engine is very responsive and it kicks!! Watch out for speeding tickets, this car encourages fast and furious driving. Don't park where it's a little tight, you need to fully swing the door open to enter and exit. This car looks and drives quite exotically. Driving it home from the dealership, people gawk and stared, from young to old. It gets attention like the cars in 100 to 200K. On rough roads, there are rattles and shakes and you can hear the engine noise behind you, but it's livable. I bought the Elise sport, so the suspension is firmer than stock. This car is definitely not for everyone, but I love it for what it is.
