I am used to people starring because of my xB. But ya earlier a guy on a motorcycle almost crashed rubber necking to look at the iQ parked. him and his girl. When I open the doors someplace it doesn't help the situation. lol. I am waiting to see someone around here with an iQ so I can go up next to them open my doors and be like... Your doors don't open this way... weird. lol.

I've had several people roll down their windows at red lights to ask me questions. Usually "What the hell is that?", followed by "What's the MPG?". The majority of them have been dudes in big pickup trucks. I'm sure they are envious.

I get all kinds.
From the pointing at the car as we drive by, to the people who will come right up to you as you are getting outta the car and ask you a million questions. Never had anyone purposely catch up to me and give me the thumbs up though...

I love the attentions (either good or bad) from other drivers and passengers. Some of them passed me, turned their heads around with a big smile. Some of them rolled down the window and waved at me. Some of them give me a WTF look when I pass them on the fast lane :p

Tell them it has a 4 star crash rating. Also it's so small it bounces back when in a collision. lol like a bouncy ball.
Yeah,I go through it all

Same thing here, most folks love MIQ but others see it and say it's a death trap........Theres no amount of explaining that can change a persons mind once it's made up.

Constantly getting looks here! One time, trying to change lanes, the car beside me would either slow down, or speed up to stay beside me! All 4 dudes in the car kept checking it out, one guy with a thumbs up. Stopped at an intersection is almost embarrassing, with all the stares!
