Just wanted to add my observations of a test drive I did of the 125s T-Jet Linea yesterday. The positives have been spoken of, a lot. Tank like build, nice power when accelerating, high GC and most important for me: smooth driving over bad patches of roads. In fact I was pleasantly surprised how easily it went over bad roads. The negatives are that in spite of being so long, I felt the seating area as a whole is small. Either the driver has to compromise or the person sitting behind him. The back windows don't open fully. No auto folding ORVM. Flimsy back center arm rest. Weird long play and sticky clutch. The steering shaking crazy on bad patches of roads. Tiny and boring 5 inch touch screen and also MID. If not for the solid build, the powerful T-Jet engine and silky smooth ride quality on any roads, I would think this car is a bit of a letdown.
