Very cheap to run, excellent car
Rear brakes seized 2 weeks after I got it, fixed them and the rear bearings too. Front discs warped made the steering wheel vibrate under braking, steering linkages (normal wear). Heater leaked, had to take out the whole dashboard to change it, used the opportunity to changed 10 dashboard light bulbs. Crappy stereo cassette is gone, installed a Sony Cd stereo.
Unbelievably cheap to run.. On a trip to Cordoba I averaged 17.5 km/l at 120km/h.
Very comfortable on both front and rear seats, the sliding rear seat is very practical too. It has not got power steering, but it does not need it.
Mine has Peugeot 306 alloy wheels and they look great.
After I fixed the front end, almost all the noises are gone, except the whining air blower (it only whines at minimum speed).
The engine is great, has over 200000 km and uses very little oil, normal for a diesel.
The gearbox and clutch are excellent.
It has not got a turbo, but again, it does not need it..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
