Well, my father has a BA fairmont Ghia, and seeing as hes on a business trip, to germany, for short trips to the shops etc when needed I am allowd to take it. I can tell you for a fact, that compared to the birlina we had (which was a 2000 model, BUT the cruise is virtually the SAME! we chacked out the brand new VY and the stics on the column feel so flimsy that it makes you wonder if there about to fall off).
Ok to the point.
It holds speed nicely, it accelerates at an easy pace to speed, if you go up a hill, it just unlocks the torque converter and gets you up it (this is a steep kill allong the m4 on the way to the city, had to get into uni one saterday) all other hills it gets over holding speed with no dramas and without you really noticing.....
NOT A SINGLE thing seemed wrong with it, it did as it was told, pressing once gave you almost exactly 1 kph more speed, pressing the -ve made it coast down 1 or 2, can't remeber.
Sop meh, it just ticked me off.
