I originally bought this car brand new for credit enhancement. I was totally unsure about it at first, and was not for owning a Chevrolet Spark, even though I had two other choices of brand new vehicles. First off, although the car is actually an Isuzu Mantiz or a Daewoo Mantiz, depending on what side of Korea it came from, in the United States it beats all competitors pricing, hands down! It is far roomier than it reveals. I really enjoy that the vehicle is very, very maintenance and serviceable friendly. Also, no parts are expensive.
They are all affordable at both the dealership, and at aftermarket auto parts stores. I love it’s five star crash safety rating. It has ten air bags, and for the type of car it is, handles, steers, and brakes better than other cars in it’s class.
The 6 speaker system sounds great. And it’s unexpected that it has very little road noise. I was very impressed with all the miles at the end of a fuel tank, and it only cost $11 to fill up from empty to full. The 7 inch digital touch screen on the dashboard which can be used for audio, and also for navigation, and a few other things, is very visibly clear and easy to use.
The vehicle is so user-friendly to operate, I recommended it for all drivers, most definitely first-time drivers, and senior citizens. All the exterior lights are a large, bright, and easily seen.
The car does have average power for a mini car, which is good, but is very slow compared to other mini cars including those in its class. Although the car is nimble on its feet, the height of the car, and the short wheelbase, give it a nervous personality when maneuvering, and steering. I hate and can’t stand fake grills, like the top one on the vehicle, and the actual grill is too gaudy.
