I have to bow down in awe; this chariot is indeed a feat of engineering. How else can one explain all the squeaks, squeals, squawks and thump produced by this 2012 (AD) model?
We rented this tiny Caliber of a car from Enterprise for 12 days while our Mazda was being fixed.
There was hardly a maneuver that did not occasion an unwanted noise: accelerating, breaking, turning, loading, not to mention going over the smallest bump. I double checked the mileage to make sure it was not reading 400k. No, it was barely 40k.
Pushing the accelerator pedal was a most painful thing to do; the engine produced a roar akin to the distress bray of a female donkey being violated and yet, not much else happened in terms of motion that is.
Although I am sure that I would learn to like and maybe love such a beast, just like mothers learn to love the ugliest of kids, why even go there when there are so many other better options out there??
