Car owner feedback


2000 Mazda Car

Nothing muchm

2011 Zotye NOMAD 1.3i

Soos enige kar het die Zoyte maar sy probleme, maar ek is meer as tevrede met die kar. Bietjie moeilik om parte in die hande te kry. Werk baie goed vir in die dorp en is lig op petrol. Die hoogte van die kar is perfek vir plaas paaie, maar is baie los op grondpad.

2012 Opel Astra 1.6 Turbo Sport

Okay, here is my little review of the car. It is one of best car to look at, it looks very good, boot space is impressive n rear seats can fold down to increase luggage space. Inside there r lots of storage compartments. Legroom, knee room n head room are good too. The finishing is great I luv the leather used in this car, I preference red stiches over the white ones though, but it's a pity, Opel only chose to supply the car with white stiches only. Dashboard is fine, however I'm not impressed with de single colour display, especially red, maybe blue would do. automatic lights, rain sensing waipers, dual zone climate control, ESP, traction control, Bluetooth connectivity.the ariconditioning system works well n it's a dual zone, very impressive. But why do I have to press four buttons to turn it off or on, i don't know, but it is so stupid n sometimes dangerous to operate it while driving. Now on the driving dynamics. This car is very very easy to drive, the hill start assist works very well. The rear parking sensors works well, the engine is so powerful n I can feel it producing the 132 kw, bt I could also feel the gearbox refusing to send all de power to the front wheels. Selecting second gear from first is mission, bt u get used to it.the turbocharger works well from 2500 rpm, below that, the car feels like a 1.2 l naturally aspirated. You can drive it like a hooligan, it will allow you, it revs all the way to the rev limiter. The rear window is big enough for visibility. It is a heavy car, which affects handling a lot, but it helps for balance at high speeds. The A pillar is too big, which has a negative effect on visibility when turning

2013 Toyota Etios 1.5 Xs

Toyota Etios (sedan)... All a car could ever be! To my surprise, I found this car's boot bigger then my brother's car boot (Toyota corolla professional), quite specious for traveling as family. A very lite and responsive car in driving performance and fuel economy. The nature of the car's suspension; well adjusted, and makes driving off-road very convenient for a car of its type. Let alone when it comes to saving coins in my pocket; to buyers wanting to own, it's important to plan for the maintenance of a car after buying. With this car, I don't remember having to worry about service or replacing a parts on it. Why not Toyota, if a car?

2013 GWM H5 2.0VGT 4x4

disappointing. This car's performance is unable to match the 4X4 badge it carries.
