Very fast, good economy


I had to replace a joint somewhere in the front-left suspension - the car made a small clicking noise when driving over bumps.

General Comments:

Some say that Almeras look dull, but mine certainly doesn't. It has a full bodykit made by Impetus, tinted windows, 2" lowered suspension and slightly tinted rear lights. It also has a racing air-filter which makes it sound very good, especially under hard acceleration.

The car is very comfortable, firm seats with good support. Very nice to have a sunroof and air-con.

The thing that surprised me the most about this car, is how economical it is. I usually get around 420 kilometres on 40 liters of petrol, and I don't drive slowly all the time! It's even more economical than my old car, which was a 1.6 SLX Sunny (Carburettor).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
