      yea that's a pretty good review. they did test the v6 though, which i know is worlds better. The entry level model is the one I am more critical of, and the weight still surprises me. There has...

      elitist? maybe read the thread.

      in the end you say it feels cheap anyway. i agree about the altima, or at least i have driven a truly brand new altima, and it certainly is floaty.

      also, your...

      the fusion, accord, optima and sonata all handle pretty well and have decent feel....especially the fusion. i still can't compare them to a brand new 200 since i've never driven one, but i have a...

      fun fact: i own a 1996 chrysler concorde with 39,000 original miles. has been in my family (grandma) since new. Leather seats, front bench, seats 6, 3.5 litre v6. Once I give it a detailing it...

      a few points about my incendiary thread:

      a) changing an opinion based on new or corrected information is not "backpedaling". i'm not a politician. i DO have an open mind and I was wrong about...

      true, and they are also not entirely in the same class, though they will be cross shopped. the passat is larger and lighter (by 200 pounds!), which is another impressive aspect.
    11. I agree with nearly everything. And since I...

      I agree with nearly everything. And since I haven't driven the new 200...I can't make this distinction myself, but based on what I've read, the Passat is still a much better vehicle than the 200,...

      these are all valid as well. turbo plumbing can be heavier than some think, and introduces the need for an intercooler which itself can be relatively heavy. all this and it is still 100 pounds...

      i agree it is a major improvement, and if that rate keeps up, it will be competitive for the next cycle. mid pack? maybe...but what's behind it? it is true that even the "worst" car in a segment...

      and it's always playing catch up and never makes it. it seems everyone else has been able to make it, even briefly, over the years. i've seen the accord, camry, sonata, passat, optima, fusion,...

      turbos add weight, so to say a car is a heavy 4 cylinder without mentioning the turbo is unfair. it also adds a good deal of power. the bmw has 60 horsepower on the sebring...and it is still a bit...

      nah not really. and it seems the 200 might still suck, just not as much. it might win most improved player but it's still coming off the bench.

      That's a solid review. I'm not backpedaling though, this was about a 2013 and i mistakenly called it brand new. this was a matter of ignorance on my part.

      I still feel VERY strongly regarding my...

      looking at some sales figures, it would certainly support that the brand new redesign is superior. From November 2014 to April 2015 it looks like the 200 had stronger sales than it ever has since...

      I guess I was just surprised how bad a 2 year old car could be, and already had experience with prior generations that have all been negative.

      i will be helping someone shop for a midsizer, so i...
