You might want to search through the Q&A's. I think I remember someone had a Kia and was able to fit in their car.
The box is pretty small. I measured 22" tall, 30" long, 12" wide/deep. I am sure it would fit just fine in the back seat of your car.
It weighed about 65lbs.

We have a Ford Windstar Van with the back seat removed. Ours was fully assembled when we picked it up. If assembled, I would doubt that is would fit in your car or any car. However if you want to assemble it or have someone you know assemble it, then it is more likely to fit. Measure your depth, height, and length of your back seat or trunk, then check the dimensions of the package or ask at Wal-Mart. Or, you could have a friend with a truck or Van help you pick it up. It is really nice to have Wal Mart assemble it before pickup. Hope this helps. It's a great Bike!

answer 1
I am not a health nut, but just using the bike everyday will do nothing but good for you. I suppose that if you use the highest pressure setting and "ride into the wind" you would lose some weight, but I don't think that it would be what you looking for. Of course, over a period of time and faithfulness you will get there, just as long as you keep the Twinkies away from the bike.

answer 5
depends on how you use it! Higher resistance will help tone your muscles. I definitely feel a burn in my thighs after I work out on resistance level 4 and it goes to 8. Then it also depends on how you sit in the seat. I move forward slightly recline and can feel it working my glutes. If you are already a fitness nut with well defined muscles, it may not provide enough resistance, but it works fine for me.

Yes, it can help. The resistance is pretty strong at its highest level, but it's still manageable. The biggest key to losing 30lbs. will be your eating style. Exercise just helps some.

The bike has 8 grades of magnetic resistance. Riding at a higher level will tone your legs. I ride about an hour, switching between grade 3 and 6-- my legs are sore and wobbly when done (like I got a great workout). The bike is also perfectly silent. I recommend it for a silent workout in front of the tv.
