You don't like the Nova Artics?

Wheel turns like an MCI. It keeps going, and going, and going.
Drivers blind spot to left of driver is like having an open hand a foot and a half away from you AT ALL TIMES!
When it rains, or when you leave the bus wash, there is no window to open to NOT look at water on window and water in mirror. And you can't reach the mirror to wipe it clean.
Haven't found out if driver side mirror is heated or not. Look at above for reason.
Driver side mirror mounted too low. We are gonna smack a lot of shit with that!
Brake set point to activate interlock is halfway to China.
Front door is moved more to the rear, to watch the animals you have to crane your neck more to back of bus. Not a 90 degree turn, more like 120 degrees.
Bus is NOT articulated like the New Flyer. Rear of bus swings back and forth, but there is no true 'turntable'. Front half of bus is rigid. Now it is like you are driving a U-Haul with a ball and hitch trailer.
Front doors are way - to - slow. There is a 2 second delay to make sure you want to open the door (?).
Drivers compartment safety door weighs like 100 pounds.
Shield is NOT sunlight friendly!
62' against 60'.
Turns different. (See U-Haul comment above)
Slow in turns.

Yup, I guess you can say I don't like them.
