It's too early in the investigation to know if changes are needed

All you need to do is read the specs on the vehicle. How much more do you need to know?


If a vehicle uses a combination of cheap parts in the steering column, brakes, wheel base, struts, etc.. If the weight distribution sucks.. If it doesn't handle well under wet or snow driving conditions.. The specs are not going to be able to tell how a car "drives". The Prius may get more mpg, but how is the ride??

You guys all seem to be missing the point, the specs are good enough for most people to tell if the car WON'T be good for them.

*IF* I looked at the specs and said that the car would be good for me, then I would want to drive it to see if the quality was what I expected.

I bet most people can tell you right now that they're next car they buy is NOT going to be an Aston Martin, and you're not going to respond to them with "but the quality is top notch, you need to drive one first".

Thank You!

I think that they still will not understand though.
