2012 Passion Cabriolet

After waiting for nearly nine months, I finally got my new metallic blue, Passion Cabriolet  I traded in my 2009.

Am so pleased with the new car.  The transmission seems to be a lot smoother, and I love the ambient lighting, the cruise control, and especially the new radio with GPS and surround sound.  The daytime running lights are another plus.

Would be interesting in hearing any comments about your 2012 model.
