Test Drive-

 

Chad drove the car several miles with the owner to put up on a rack for inspection, and also drove the vehicle back. The engine started, ran, accelerated, de-acellerated, and shut off just as it was designed to. The steering had a lot of assist, and it was very easy to steer, and seemed to drive down the road straight. When the brakes where applied it stopped very smoothly, and evenly. We did not experience any pulling or pulsation at all, and stopped easily as you would expect from 4 wheel disc. The transmission up shifted, and down shifted, and seemed to be performing, and operating just as it was designed to. Felt very solid, and the car has that almost as if it was new feel and sound to it when driving.
