hey guys , absolutely no offense meant of course - what an engine on that car huh? love it especially in a straight line BUT i think the car has TERRIBLE handling ! for performance drivers at least.
Dont mean to take a leak on your parade but does anyone agree with me?

i also believe that this model didnt sell abroad due to a severe lack in safety.

Terrible handling even on moderately upsized tires especially on the wet , is how i feel , BUT maybe its my driving style.

Remind me please - 4 wheel disc brakes man ?

cheers man

As an OHC owner, I agree. At speeds below 80 - 100, the car is really responsive with predictable grip levels. But above that, start saying your prayers. I stopped taking my Vtec out on the highway.

But if you like sliding (as I do), things can get pretty enjoyable.

Well i usually start sayin my prayers after 120, GTO, coz til then, the road grip is good enough, that is, with all the seats filled..!
We in goa have a wonderful stretch of road from calangute to panjim, which really tests the stability of ur car with some amazing curves and corners, and while redlining my OHC 1.5exi on that road, i never felt doubtful bout the car's grip! But as i said, there were 5 passengers in the car at that time, so that could be the reason for the pretty good road grip!?
One thing i feel the car shud have had is ABS, which keeps ur mind at ease while drivin on high speeds.
