Well I got my test drive of the Optra5, it now sits in my driveway. The fit and finish is very good and the car is roomy. I drove it before and of the salespeople did and was very surprised at how well the car acted. The auto was silky smooth and shifted at just the right time. The engine was quite and peppy and the radio(the 8 speaker option) sounds great. After my drive the sales manager took the car out and he was giggling and said "its so fun to drive, I think its time to get rid of my truck." I think this car will be a good thing for GM it fills the gap between the Cav and Boo nicely. The only thing I don't like it the choice of tire size, 195 55 R15. Its kinda an oddball of selection of tires is limited and the cost more then a common size. One other note I was talking to the tech that just trained on the optra and he said the was"overbuilt" for the car and should be problem free.
