Test Driver Ratings & Comments
Acceleration commentsThe best run was the first run using a street start with the automatic shifting for itself at 6,250 rpms from both first to second and second to third. I still feel it could benefit from a five-speed automatic or even better yet, a manual transmission.
Braking commentsA solid number with almost no ABS system noise. The second run was much better than the first and the third was still better than the first, so they seem to work better a little hot.
