    Took one out this morning for a test drive, totally un impressed with the 1.8vvt, talk about gutless, even pulling away from lights etc was a chore as for the initial press of the accelerator there's nothing, by that time clutch was up and then car stalled, just found it needed some welly as it were just to get it going, and it was pulling to the left constantly with steering being extremely light when moving was also something I noticed, there was also some strange issues with bodywork, too many to mention!! for a network Q car I have to say I was totally disgusted and they wanted £7995 on a 55' plate with 11,500 miles!! not avery well looked after vehicle, anyway I think it might have to be the 2.2 which I might have to consider now as having driven a work mates 2.2 one there's just no comparison!! just beats the 1.8 hands down.

    well I dont think they are that bad...I was actually surprised by how "smooth" it was, but for the same reason as old cruiser (a little gutless) I would not buy a 1.8, even though i have seen some very good deals for that model....go test drive one!
