    Downshift before overtaking. No problem sa city dun lang sa provincial highways daming mabagal na tricycle at truck when you see an opening you have a few seconds to overtake.

    Hindi ba't lahat ng matic nag-dodownshift pag nag-floor ka?

    Downshift, lower gear, higher RPM, aarangkada.

    Altis hindi

    Pero nung nag-reset ako ECU nagdodownshift na, pag gusto niya (hindi pag gusto ko). Kaya ata nila nilagyan ng paddle shifters, para di naman magwala yung driver dahil sa unresponsiveness ng tranny

    Floor the accelerator, tranny goes down a gear, to make RPM rise up to where the torque is, around 4k - 5k rpm,
    High torque, better acceleration. :D
    Try mo.

    1.3 City. The 1.5 is lovely to drive, I'm pretty sure the 1.3 will be about the same.

    1.3 City feels lifeless at low revs. About the same as a Mirage 1.2, if not a tad worse. But once you get to its powerband you realize why it's rated at 100 HP. Pretty decent acceleration when you push it. Handling isn't all that impressive though - steering is good, but skinny tires make for a floaty feel when cornering.

    But for me mas sakto talaga yung L15A sa City/Jazz.
