Interurban 7669 (V669 DVU) was on the 54-MANN ISLAND Tuesday.
Managed to get a ride, awful rattlebox with clinking noises coming from the rear suspension, rattley grab poles, chilly draughts, jolting gearchanges, noisy engine (sounds like a manic hairdryer) and window panes that visibly quiver when a pothole is hit.

From a passenger point of view, Pulsars are a million times better with their solid rattle-free build quality, quieter engines, smoother ride, wider interior and increased stability. Granted, they tend to hyper-rev a lot, but they're much more pleasant than a clapped-out Dart.

These newer buses can't come soon enough (in my opinion).
