A bloody good buy for 50 bucks (AU)


Brakes were left with no fluid.

Brake linings were worn to nothing.

Oil light faulty.

Radiator is in constant need of flushing. I wouldn't go on a big drive in it.

Rust spots appearing all over, but what do you expect for 32 year old paint.

General Comments:

This car will not beat anything off the line, but is the best car you will ever purchase.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
