been looking around for a cheaper replacement for my astra (initially was looking for my friend, but i got myself more interested than him now!)
has anyone here riddin in or driven an mr2? any thoughts? in particular the non turbo 2.0GT model...drove one today, was some good points and bad points...
good points for me....nice looking for price, t-bar roof is awesome, seats r VERY comfortable, perfect driving position for me, MR madness
bad points were...(dont know if these were just the example i went to look at)...
1. steering wheel didnt seem that responsive...turned it and nothing...esp whilst doing maouvers
2. brake pedal was very wobbly...not as firm and responsive brake feel as the astra...?
3. brake pedals quite close together? although i was wearing clumsy size 12 timberlands lol
4. on the books the mr2 is a whole second faster to 60mph, and has 45 extra horsies...but...doesnt seem to pull away as fast as the astra?!? even at 3k-4k revs...no kick?? and low rev response not very good
I really liked this car, untill i drove it...was a bit disappointed (was a very short drive though...i think i will go again) im hopeing its just the particular one that i was driving
