They don’t call them comfort seats

An hour into my drive and I’m more than ready to get out. The suspension is doing its best to compound the discs in my spine and its effects are only exaggerated by the Evo’s awesome sport seats. Normally they would be appreciated, holding me in place bombing around a track, but after a less-than-prolonged time cruising the highways in the land of Cheeseheads, the seating position feels as awkward as walking in on your parents.

    Yet another anti-Evo-ite.

    For shame

    so at the autoguide track the evo s already 1.5 sec ahead of the focus? calculate how much the gap will be at the FSW or nurburgring. at the rally track evo will eat focus for breakfast.

    Except it will run out of gas in a lap. Lol.

    I think Evo rules , if you buy it for what it was meant to be done with it!! Unless you want a stupid garage queen that pampers your wimpy ass! Yes , interior sucks , no denial, and fuel economy could be better, but if you are carng for both treats, get another car!

    For the record, I LOVE the Evo. I just thought it was worthwhile to give this viewpoint. Who really wants to read another article describing at length how the car’s AWD system turned them into a professional race car driver?
    Do a quick search for the Evo vs Boss 302 review (with video) we did and you’ll hear me gush over the Evo.

    The guy who wrote this should be driving a Prius.

    Needs a Hollywood_x tune. ;)

  • Cleudson

    If this guy thought it about driving the EVO in the USA roads, imagine my situation driving here in Brazil? kkkk. But…I’m still happy with my EVO.

    Wow. I was averaging 22mpg on a tuned 350awhp MR Touring. It was what was expected by the car. I do agree some of the internals were a bit cheap but nothing that would affect the overall quality and performance. Based on these gripes, get a luxury sports car where these so called inspection would have a more solid ground.
