The Review

An updated review on my 1st review. The car drives very nicely. Fuel consumption has improved. Aircon works fine but the right centered vent aims right at my indicator and steering wheel. The left centred vent can't reach me as it's designed for the passenger. These are minor comments though. Overall, still a nice car to drive.

Strengths

Weaknesses

Windshield wipers are weak! Aircon is strong but ill positioned.

Fuel consumption: 10km/litre
Drive pattern: Am getting about 10 km / litre right now - which is still not what the salesman told me - he said I should be getting around 12 km / litre. We'll see if that holds up

The Review

My car of choice was the Honda Accord but I didn't like the dashboard which had a nasty reflection in the windscreen. The Subaru's engine was nice but the car was small. The Camry was nice but not as quiet as I wanted it to be. I tested this by chance while crossing the road from Subaru at Leng Kee. I was pleasantly surprised by the ride of the Epica - I'd never sat or driven in a Daewoo / Chevy before so I didn't know what to expect. Definitely for comfort riders like myself. The pricetag was nice and the value for money - with an mp3 input among other features - is hard to beat. Even the higher priced Subaru didn't have electronic controls on the car seat adjustments. If there's a foible - the back styling of the Epica isn't brilliant. But otherwise, worth a drive for those looking at the competition. At nearly 20 k less than a camry - this was worth it.

Strengths

Quiet, Smooth, Nice Sound System, Lots of Features

Weaknesses

Make & Durability yet to be tested - still new
