Very fast and very smooth
The car was an amazing purchase.
For a 2.4 litre engine it is very quiet and has brisk acceleration. My previous car was a turbo 1.8 and the Cav would have beaten the pants off it!
The only things I don't like about it are:
- The seats are to hard and too narrow.
- The stereo is designed for pre-schoolers.
- The steel alloys look like crap.
- The shift lever is very stiff to move and the top-mounted shift button is too uncomfortable to push down and requires a lot of force.
In New Zealand these cars are also badged as a Toyota Cavalier so I can benefit from Toyota's recognised quality servicing as well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
