Shake, Rattle... No Roll

ReviewThis car does not compare favorably with my last Volvo in: turn radius, ride quality or fit & finish. Wonder what a Camaro or Mustang built in Sweden would be like? It would have front wheel drive, lots of air bags, power steering that binds during U-Turns, bake transmission fluid in 10k miles, a sunroof outsourced to Hyundai (make the noise go away), comparable build quality, plenty of rattles & squeaks. The side windows make an alarming "thud" at bottom, a real passenger pleaser. Does the spring rate really need to be this high? Two alignments have failure to prevent this thing from hunting the road like a hound after prey.
Best FeaturesThe looks, unbelievable SC-901 sound system, the power... this feels like more than 236 BHP, split spoke wheels.
Worst FeaturesReduce the spring rate (Tom Walkinshaw needs them back... for his Arrows F1 program), give the transmission back to the Ford Focus, reduce rattles & squeaks (start with the sunroof), decrease the turn radius (an F4 can hang a U-Turn tighter)... fix the binding problem while you're at it.
