I wonder if some of the comments from US forum users would be less negative if they could actually buy these cars.
Yes, the sound has been praised in the reviews, but how many of the reviewers knew it was being generated by a synthesizer? Would they still praise it if they knew much of the sound was emanating from the speakers instead of directly from the engine? I suspect that praise wouldn't be as high as it has been.
