What a cheap,flimsy looking car LOL .It might be fun though to try out at the dodgems on the fairground but for long distance driving and safetythat thing looks like it would flip over easy in a strong breezeThree wheelers have been tried many times and always been very much third rate with no resell value or at least a very greatly diminished resell value. Besides I just sold my volvo which stated that it got seventy miles per gallon on a run .I could never get it to do anywhere near that nearer to fifty five IMHO. Our youngest son Ewen has just bought his first ever new car ,and it is just a vauxhall corsa with a one thousand cc engine which gets according to the papers it states it will get sixty to the gallon.It is at least a well proven safe car to drive .He gets it on monday and is super thrilled .I hope he has a few good safe years with it as he just passed his driving test last year.I would not feel safe if he was driving this three wheeled contraption sorry my 2 cents ,but I genuinely perhaps mistakenly feel exactly that.They do not come out well if struck by another car .Steering is sometimes problematic also,which has been well proven over many years, both here and in Germany were they started with the bubble car messerschmidt.It does look tremendous fun though I will say that but safety is everything where your children are concerned sorry LOL Alistair
