Default Cars of the World

Cars of the World

Hi, KiwiGuy here. I want to know what everyone here thinks of various cars around the world whether they're from Europe, America, Australasia or in China. Tell me your experiences, or if you own cars and you would to talk about them.

Let's get the ball rolling. The Suzuki Swift. My family has one. It's very good with fuel economy, and has a very good sound system, but we only have the baseline 1.3 model which lacks the punch that other models have. The build quality is good, but you can push the interior door panels in, which is typical of Suzuki. Without the mag wheels, the road noise is very noticable and our car has developed a pronounced rattle somewhere. And here's the strange thing, there's no stop button on the CD player, which is rather odd considering how many other cars in it's class have CD players.
Anyway, enough from me, let's hear about you.

We used to have a 2002 Toyota Caldina (new design) but we sold that. Where I live the most popular cars are the new Suzuki Swift and cars like the Toyota Yaris and Honda Jazz/Fit.
What particular car is popular in Chile?
