In that case, I would like one of these.......

OK, so time for a bit of a review...

I give it 4 out of 5 stars - simply because of some of the minor things.

The Good:


Drives smooth, absolutely no hitches so far in the 30 or so miles I've put on it. Kind of like driving on rails - it goes where you tell it to go.


For an open air vehicle with performance off-road suspension its nice. Sure not as comfy as a luxury car, but I did not sense my back, butt, or other limbs were going to hurt for an extended drive.


It will get up and go for sure, about as well as any 1 litre engine. Stayed mostly in third gear due to the hills around my area, but the fourth gear is good for cruising. First and second gear have plenty of oomph! for 53HP.

The Bad: (some of these are purely subjective...)

Gas Pedal

First vehicle I have driven/owned where the pedal is attached to the floor and no suspended from above. Little awkward at first, but I am getting use to it. Only other complaint is the responsiveness from the pedal, it is a little stiff to get it going - but I believe it can be adjusted, so maybe something I just need to tweak.

Turn Signals

They are on the dash, it is a rocker switch. Up for RIGHT and Down for LEFT - not the end of the world, but once again, a bit awkward. I see in my future redoing this so I have these up on the steering wheel.

Brake Pads

These things are tiny - going to replace ASAP. They still stop fine in normal traffic, but I don't feel too comfortable with them in an emergency. Going to be the first "mod" for sure to happen and get some beefier pads.


Little rough. Maybe it just needs to be broken in, or maybe I am just use to an automobile manual transmission. Works perfectly fine, just 'feels rough', but no grinding or anything.

The Stupid:

I guess in my excitement last night I went to the gas station to fill up and apparently drove off without putting my gas cap back on. It was a nice cap too, not plastic, hefty metal cap. So its resting on some road somewhere between the gas station and my house.

Guess I will take a trip to Advance Auto Parts today.

The Interesting:

Even though I have no reason to think I am doing anything wrong, knowing my luck a mile from my house a county police cruiser turned onto the road behind me. Road behind me for at least 5 miles then simply turned off on whatever street he was going to. So, still a sigh of relief considering I am in the 30 day period awaiting my papers to register.
