2004 Holden BarinaReview
Despite Flaws, This Car Is Entertaining To Drive, Especially For A 4cyl Hatch... — It's disappointingly feminine, has a smaller engine than most petrol radio controlled cars, takes between 3 and 5 weeks to get to 60mph depending on wind direction/speed and the grade of the hill. The interior rattles and squeeks like you wouldn't believe. All in all however, I must say the car is fun to drive, due to some incredible stock suspension, and as for cost, the fuel needle jumps an inch higher every time I drive past a petrol station.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Cornering is amazing, bringing you back to the age of 12, when you first drove a go-cart.
Cons: Lack of power, lack of style, lack of build quality on the interior (As well as overall design failures, featuring the plastic gear linkage.)
