Summary:

Excellent

Faults:

Shifting can be hard sometimes.

No rims on the package - comes with standard covers, which can be easily stolen.

Uncomfortable back seats (space issues, mostly).

Basic set of tools.

General Comments:

It's not my dream car, but it sure does pack a lot of power with that little 1.6 engine. Acceleration from 0 to 100kph is pretty smooth, and the car handles extremely well both in the city and in the highway.

Fuel consumption is excellent, I have the tank filled up every two weeks or so for daily tasks (average daily running distance is 28km, that's a 9-10km/L performance). In terms of gas consumption, the Chevy C2 is only beat by the out-of-production VW Beetle. But given that the former is bigger and more comfortable than the latter, this is a fair trade-off.

I am definitely happy with this car and with the dealership service. Should you consider buying one, do it without hesitation, because it will save you a lot of money.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
