#219 of 225 Electronic stability control for any of these three hatchbacks?
Dec 01, 2007 (7:23 am)
I came across this thread totally by mishap, and I'm glad I did.
My question is this:
Does anyone think that ESC will be made available on any or all of these hatchbacks in question sooner than the mandatory date of, I believe, 2010 or thereabouts? I'd go for any of the three if ESC was available, but for now I'm in a holding pattern to purchase until this feature becomes available. I'd even consider a Rio SX5 or Accent SE if they would offer it. Any thoughts or opinions out there?

The Korean cars are trying to go the easy route first by making their interior look
and feel high quality. Unfortunately, everything else is crap. The small cars still
have bad crash protection, bad gas mileage, poor braking, and poor acceleration.
I crack up when I hear people fall for this anti-Toyota quality campaign. It comes
every time the big 3 gets in trouble. I heard about how the big 3 are now equal or
better than the Japanese in the 80's, 90's, and today. I fell for it 3 times. Never
again. The highest rated small cars in terms of quality for 2007 were the Yaris and
Fit. So where's the Toyota quality lapse. Har har har.

The Yaris is as ugly as its name!
#223 of 225 No luv for Yaris?

The Yaris is the best selling subcompact in America. It outsells the Fit by
a huge margin. Yet I sense no love from the US press for the car. Could it
be because Toyota is destroying the once mighty GM? The Yaris is my choice
for sure. It's cute, best gas mileage, quickest of all the subs, and is very comfortable.
Oh, it's also the most reliable car for 2007. Have you seen how the Malibu is
heralded as the second coming from the press? I hope people realize the car
was designed in Europe.

Versa's back seats tumbel forward to make a flat loading area as the Suzuki SX4 does? Or does it have the hump from the seats permanantly? Thanks!

They're not flat. It's humped up where the seats are. Bad design for a hatch.
