ninja assassin

The Yaris is fun to drive. It handles pretty well for a small car. The console is a design nightmare however. With it in the center of the dash they must have thought it would be less disruptive to watching the road.

In fact, it has the opposite effect instead. It's like you are looking towards the ditch to check your speed. This seems to be counter intuitive to me. I suppose those who never check their speed..it's fine. I'm a little used to checking everything in my dash. The beemer would even tell me how many KMS I had left on the tank of gas.

Other than that, it doesn't show you on the dash what gear you are in...and there's no light on the gearbox to tell you either. Once you get used to the gears it's fine, but I found myself putting it in 3rd gear more often than drive.

Oh, and it's silver. I guess my premonition was off there.

AND, I just want to add this because of how ridiculous it was. I had a dream last night that I was an assassin and I was driving a street motorcycle. It was a Honda. This is bizarre, cause I'm scurred of even getting on a motorcycle.

I wonder if I should...
