I just took delivery of Black/Black
w/Blue inserts. Didn't think I could
get this much performance from what
started as a compact. I have no
complaints: outstanding acceleration,
particularly in lower rpm range. The
cornering and braking are go-kart
like! I really like the interior
materials and layout; very comfortable
and supportive seats, even in the rear.
Great visability too. The optional CD
sound system is the best I have ever
heard. I originally thought about
purchasing a Vibe/Matrix. They are
very good also; but if you are out for
a performance ride, the SVT is better
in almost every area.
Suspension/ Brakes are without equal.
The engine responds in every gear and
at all RPM levels--very rare in a four
cylinder. Great gauge aray also.
Needs a sliding shotgun seat for better
access to the rear seats.
