It drives exactly like a Neon. Steering is very tight and the ride is very good. It doesn't drive like a van or SUV, which is the impression that can be got when looking at it.
The intake is adequate for the engine, but the World engine is said to respond very well to breathing modifications. A better air filter would be all that's needed until CAIs and wider TBs are made availible.
The MPG is given through a digital readout that gives "to the tenth" information about milage. (24.5, etc.) It will change based on throttle position, engine speed, mixture, barometric pressure, air quality...etc.
thanks for the pics, they look great. how does feel over rough surfaces? and how is the interior noise level at highway speed? ordinarily it wouldn't matter but some of the roads where i live are..... well, let's just say some dirt roads are smoother than the paved ones.
The cabin is very quiet at highway speeds, with wind and road noise muffled greatly. What little noise there is can be easily covered by the radio. It is not displeasing and with the radio off not uncomfortable. The Caliber handles rougher roads and terrain rather well and it not uncomfortable when driving over uneven pavement or pitted roads.
