Besides the squeaks and rattles that others have been complaining about, I dont see why the 250c would have such a rating. I have had no real problems with my car. I loved it before I bought it and I still love it now.
I have never owned a vert so I cannot compare the experience. I would like to see the scale that the comparison was based upon. In the end, it really doesnt matter because I am still going to keep my car and keep modding.
