    Hmmm...those wheels are 4x100. Maybe you could swap some old Mirage steelies on there and nobody would know the difference when you turn the car back in.

    But can it do this?

    No idea! And I didn't drive it long enough to matter.

    Ha. I could stick a Chevy logo on my Mitsu wheelcovers.

    I thought the video was going to be a Spark EV. Apparently they are insanely torquey for a little car.

    Exactly...

    Am I now looking for dirt cheap Sparks? Tune in to my new Youtube channel to find out!

    No, a neighbour's new Buick is in for service and they gave him this as a loaner. He knows I like oddball penalty boxes, so offered to let me try it out.

    My one word review: it's surprisingly refined.

    They're not bad little cars but if you go on Reddit the Chevy Spark thread is filled with owners complaining about their 2014 thru 2016 CVT going out well before 100k miles. I have yet to find anyone on that thread that has even 175k miles on their original CVT7.
