It's awfully shouty. But it drives nice.

Never met such a powerful front driver with so little issues putting it down, even in tight corners.

Totally the case. Juvenile. I wish they would just give the car the sleek and elegant surface they could accomplish within a budget, rather than pretending they are investing in aero features their price-point does not allow. The basic shape is good.


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
