    My car

    Surprisingly roomy compact car, very cute so really a girlie car, getting about 60mpg but I don't drive like a maniac. mostly extra urban miles. Comfy seats with good adjustability, very quiet engine but plenty of power for overtaking. Will definately buy another.

    My car

    This is going to be difficult to say in 1500 characters, much like the difficulty "all you can eat" buffets have accomodating my appetite, but here goes:

    I bought this car under the impression that it was roomy inside. All I can tell you is that I was lied to.

    The cars ride is very stiff which is surprisingly to my liking as I like a rough ride. The suspension isn't too brilliant. I have had it replaced on the driver's side 3 times in the last week alone.

    Its certainly awkward and a squeeze getting in as my stomach beeps the horn all the time. This prompted me to write to Cheverolet asking them to install a removable steering wheel - I have not had a reply as yet.

    I have also had to call the emergency services to get me out a couple of times as gastric gases rapidly accumulated to cause my belly to swell furthermore and leave me wedged in my seat.

    I have problems making left turns at speed because the car feels like it's going to roll like Free Willy at Sea World. The engine also struggles when the car is faced with an incline of 3 degrees or more. I did once end up taking on a hill at speed, but ended up rolling back down again as it couldn't handle it.

    My problematic weight is no comparison to this problematic car. I am tired of avoiding speed bumps, hills and left turns.

    My car

    I have to say i am really pleased with this little car, i have just come back from our local dealer and he was very plesent and nice to me , the car is cute as can be inside and out, of course it's most proberly not for a man, but there is alot of head room inside and legroom for such a tiny car!!!, and with a pop up sunroof who could ask for more , a good robust little car as the other reviewer said and i agree!!!! 10/10!!!
