i have ordered an xr6t ute, AUTO (which i am not sure was a good move?wanted it for boat towing)
i took an turbo auto ute for a test drive on tuesday, and was not really that impressed with it! i maybe just expecting to much!
definately not staight line wheel spin was possible and through it into a couple of corners and it would not let go!(i know that says alot about how good it is) but under power i would expect it to step out.
this car was a demo that has obviously been thrashed, over 11 000 klm on it! and bad bang coming from the right rear. definatley didnt feel like 450nm of torque pushing me along.
and one had experience with the auto's??
You sure you tested a T U R B O ute?
I drove the auto turbo ute press car. I was smoken them going into 3rd gear. That beast stepped out so bad i could still be now in circle work heaven. One the bad side, understeers like a WRX.
Anyway, if you must have the ute, leaf springs and all, then itís a good car. Nothing like the spam you test drove. That being said, canít you tow your boat with a sedan?
What the hell are you doing buying a car and not really knowing if youíve done the right thing??
Moral of the story is test cars are ment to be driven like theyíre stolen!!
