My wife collected her 2.0p today.

First impression. Ride n handling very good. Balanced. Power can't tell coz did not tekan. Not used to cvt. When accelerating, the engine sounded strained and progress moderate. Hver, when speed attained, cruising was surprisingly acceptable, even bodering on refine at speed not exceeding national speed limit. No complaint on jerkiness of cvt in town driving.

So far so good.


i have nothing but praise for the 2.0P with the exception of loud moving machine engine note when asked to work hard. a good set of sound insulation is worthwhile investment. when the engine is not labouring, curise is surprisingly refined. quite an irony. anyone else with similiar grouse?

Hi all, I just collected my 2.0 few days ago. Handling and comfort level is pretty good. However, acceleration from stagnant feel pretty heavy for 2.0 standard. Does it get better after the 1st or 2nd service?

Like some other owner, when I drive over a bump, I do get the tok tok sound coming from absorder. Hope SC can rectify it for me. Other than tat, it is a very decent car to drive.

for 2.0 need to get used to the cvt as u cant feel the pull, use the paddle shifter for more power tongue.gif
,as for the sound do get the SC to change the bush and bumpstopper.
