Summary:

All in all, a super car. Love the looks

Faults:

Sports suspension gives a harsh ride.

General Comments:

I am quite happy with the car with the exception of ride quality. From what I had read before purchasing the car, I expected a ride quality similar to the 3 series BMW, which I still own. Any suggestions for modifications to improve the ride?

Previous carOpel Astra

Summary:

Best deal I have done since I sold my Astra

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with this car so far. I have been driving it for about three months with no problems.

General Comments:

The car has a five automatic transmission that behaves very smoothly while you are driving in the city. However, you can turn the shift knob to manual when you want more control and more power, the auto-stick option is great. If you push the car to the limit you will have to be careful because it pushes until you stop.

Although I would revise the timing between speeds (make them shorter), I like this transmission so far.

I also like all the safety features the car has with it. The tool box is quite complete as well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
