Since the crunch, it’s been my “privilege” to have had two replacement cars, one through bloody Enterprise and one as a courtesy car from the bodyshop.
Depressingly, both of them have been Chevrolet cars. Two or three years ago they would’ve been Daewoo cars, but they’re now all rebadged as Chevrolets.
The Enterprise car was an Avgo (and who the fuck makes up these stupid names?) which was a woefully underpowered piece of crap. 0-60 time could be measured in days, and felt like it was driving on pram-wheels rather than anything useful.
The courtesy car is the model below the Avgo, the Matiz. Amazingly, it’s even more woefully underpowered than the Avgo, and appears to have been designed by Zanussi’s washing machine department. When I open the door on it, I don’t know whether to get in or throw in a load of laundry.
Based on a sample of two, I’ve got to say, Chevrolet cars are an awesome heap of shit. I suspect they’re only bought by hire companies and the like as “lowest common denominator” vehicles. Surely no-one buys them out of choice?
