I have never loved a car more than this one - and I've had many
I broke off the radio aerial by forgetting to unscrew it before going into the car wash (NZ$ 40 for a new one, yikes!).
And I blew the cigarette lighter fuse by trying to inflate an air mattress electrically the wrong way round.
So, none of the car's fault, really.
This is easily the best and the most likable car I've ever owned! If it disappeared on me, I would buy one exactly like it again.
Things I like about this car:
Tremendously comfortable front seats.
Wonderful CVT transmission.
I love the styling - what a quirky little thing!
At 100km/h, the car ticks over at barely 2000 rpm. That makes it a great, relaxed highway cruiser.
Fuel consumption is sensationally low - I get 5.6 L/ 100km regular fuel in everyday driving.
It's possible to sleep in the back of it - I've gone on holiday with it, sleeping on a mattress with the dimensions 190 x 90 cm in the back with the seats folded down. It was perfectly comfortable.
The boot is huge, and can be made even "huger" by folding down seats. I've picked up a tall fridge freezer with this car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
