Like a big go-kart, but with comfier seats!
Developed exhaust rattle around 195,000 K's ($30 fix)
This car is 100 percent a drivers car. You just have to sit in it and start driving it to know this. I have owned mine for two years and still fall in love with it more each day. I receive a lot of compliments on it, too.
If you really enjoy driving, but have a limited budget, this car is an excellent choice. Even with my lead-foot driving style, I get 9 liters to 100km. Consumable parts cost the same as for any other car (belts, filters etc.), but major parts cost more. Due to excellent build quality however, these are rarely needed. The only car I would consider to replace this one is the Honda S2000.
I would not recommend this car to you if:
-you are too tall to comfortably fit inside
-you have difficulty getting in and out due to how low it is
-you need to regularly take more than one passenger
-you need to carry large items in the boot (entry is a bit small).
If none of the above are a problem, go for it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
