Fantastic cars; first car, second car, whatever
Not much at all.
Had a thermostat replaced.
Great cars, so popular round NZ for good reason too.
Looks great on 15" alloys off the SSS model/ hot import VZ-R spec. Goes well for a 1.6, extremely economical; get around 550kms round town, 620-ish with highway use.
Everything works great, had a lot done to it before I purchased it, such as A/C reconditioned, brakes overhauled, new radiator, new clutch. My only worry is that it sounds like the chain is a bit rattly on startup, but that goes after about 5 seconds.
A wee gripe; the front seats could do with more support and cushioning. Went on a trip down south last month, and got quite a sore back after about 2 hours.
Overall I am very pleased with it. Hopefully will continue to serve me well in the future. Just had an engine service with gearbox flusher around 15 kms ago.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
