A very reliable car


Water pump went when I got it.

General Comments:

This car has served me well not ever breaking down, excellent on fuel and economy. Goes alright when you put the foot down. Seats aren't the best and same applies for the interior. Exterior has damage to the front and back very little though.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
