Bastards!!! LOL J/K I don't think a dealer in NY even has one yet, I want my test driveGermaneon said:For the top speed I think export models will get higher speeds than domestic models. Unlike domestic Neons my export Neons reach 130 mph before the speed governor catchs them.
Duplicated the time with my SXT/2.0L/CVT2. I performed the DCX manual-sanctioned "full throttle" 0-60 test and by my wife's wristwatch we hit 60mph in 8 seconds. And that was with two adults (330lbs total) in the front seats.Silverfox said:Caliber SXT will get to sixty in about eight seconds by my watch. It could be less, could be more.
Car gets better MPG and acceleration as break in occurs. (Was their test vehicle a preproduction model??)sonicman said:edmunds.com (http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=115318)
just performed a full test of the AWD/2.4L/CVT2. 10.1 0-60mph. That is seriously unacceptable, especially from a brand that prides itself on its go fast, take no prisoners attitude. I'm sure part of it is the additional weight of the "AWD" system and the sluggish nature of the CVT, but how can you seriously put out a product like this? 10.1? that's prius range. that's slower than my mom's caravan.
I was looking forward to the R/T before i test drove one. Then i was looking forward to the manual R/T, but considering these performance numbers, i dont see how the manual fwd can be significantly faster. someone really messed up at dcx to greenlight the r/t with these specs and especially to produce the slowest version first and advertise it the most.
