I've had a Cascada to review for the alst week and just wanted to put up my impressions of it.
Overall it's not a bad car it drives nice, the ride is smooth, it's fun driving around with the top down and the fuel economy wasnt bad at all.
I found the wind shield in the boot today which basically turns it into a 2 seater and couldn't believe how much of the wind it kept out, it works really well.
Now while it was pretty good on petrol it does feel like it could use more grunt, it feels sluggish off the mark and desn't feel all that exciting which is a shame as I found it handled rather nicely.
Although the fact it weights more then a VF commodore might have something to do with it.
A few downsides the dash is estentially the same looking dash from when Opels were selling cars here so it looks past it's use by date.
The same with the Mylink its rubbish compared to Mylink in all the other Holden models, it's fiddly and damn pain in the ass to use, my sister jumped in it today and first thing she was WTF are all these buttons for it looks confusing. She is familiar with Mylink and went to change the radio station and couldn't believe it wasnt a touch screen and agreed its a pain in the butt to use.
Holden might be lucky in the fact there isnt a lot of convertibles on the market to compete with and it's priced similar to most of them although it does miss a few things the golf gets but its a golf.
The other thing I don't like is Opels colour range specially on the ones we are getting is crap compared to Holden, Hyundai, hell even Toyota.
The only Colour i find attractive is Arden blue and it's a VXR colour.
