Recommendation: meh 4.7 / 5 from 14 reviews

So I am a huge fan of Cars the movie and I have enjoyed playing with Legos since I was decades younger. This set is no exception. Typical high quality fit and finish. It is not a complicated set to build but it sure is fun once it's assembled. The retailer I used was awesome to deal with. They had it to me in record time and it was exactly as promised. The shipping company did dent the box a little but since I intended to open and play with the Legos not put them on a shelf as a collectible I was not concerned. Would use this Amazon partner again.

This score from amazon.com is an aggregate of 14 reviewers. The snippet above represent only one of them.

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by Oky

While the design could have been more accurate and several of Radiator Springs' residents are missing, it's still a pretty good representation of Flo's V8 Cafe with a couple of play features. If you want a more accurate version of the cafe, you can probably make one by buying two of these and combining them.

If you're a fan of LEGO Cars, you'd be remiss to not pick up this set, but try to get it on sale as the actual setting that the set is named after is a complete joke. If it weren't for the excellent cast of characters, there'd be little reason for me to recommend this set. Fillmore, Sally, Sarge, and Flo do not show up anywhere else so you don't really have a choice if you're looking to get all the minicars.
