General Comments:

This car has been a pleasure to own.

Chuck it into fourth on the open road and it will easily torque it past cars during overtaking.

The engine is creamy smooth and the handling is better than my other car, a VN Commodore.

This car is the most modern 1982 vehicle I have driven - much more up to date styling inside and out, it looks more like an 1985 shape.

Adjustable suspension actually works!

Even has a warning light to say the spare tire is missing or flat!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
