What's it like to drive?
At first the power stearing feels alittle heavy but soon get used to it. The accelorator doesnt take much to hit the ground and when like any car accelorating doesnt do well for fuel

What's it like to park?
Alot of blind spots on this style of car, with a chunky behind has caused one or two problems.
